Northern Short Story Festival Academy

The Northern Short Story Academy is a programme which develops the voices of twelve new short story writers resident in the North of England. Progressing their craft and professional skills, the scheme aims to help writers develop a network of contacts and give them infrastructure to grow.

The programme, run in partnership with the Walter Swan Trust, gives the writers access to opportunities such as workshops, radio broadcasting, and anthologisation. So far our graduates have been anthologised in “Best of British Short Fiction”, “Best of British Fantasy Short Fiction 2019” and have been commissioned by the BBC. We expect more success stories to follow!
