Welcome to Short Story September

Short Story September is a month-long initiative celebrating the short story form.

Set up by Dahlia Publishing the aim of the project is to encourage everyone to have a go at putting pen to paper while showcasing exceptional short story writers and their work. 


Now in its second year, Short Story September will showcase newly published short story collections alongside:

  • a writing prompt
  • short story resource
  • short story criticism

Follow us on Twitter @dahliabooks and use the hashtag #ShortStorySept to join the conversation.

*In 2018 the project profiled 30 British short story writers.
