Just over two weeks to go before the first meeting of the reading round and anthologies of short stories and poems are piling up on my desk. Although my shelves have always been pretty packed with poetry, short stories are a more recent pleasure and I am looking out for new discoveries every time I pass a charity shop or secondhand bookshop.

I’ve pulled together some online sources of poems and stories in these pages and will keep a record of all the texts we look at.

So I’m looking forward to meeting everyone in the group and if you come across these pages and want to join, I can put you on the waiting list. All the information is in the Reading Round at Fabrica page, with a link to email me.
