Come along and hear the inside story of the BBC National Short Story Award with the 2017 judge and author Jon McGregor, winner of this year’s National Short Story Prize, Welsh novelist and TV scriptwriter, Cynan Jones, and special guests. Cynan was presented with the £15,000 prize for his story ‘The Edge of the Shoal’. The panel, chaired by Sandeep Mahal, Director of Nottingham UNESCO City of Literature, will explore how to lose and find yourself in words – the special power in short stories to capture the imagination of the reader.
