The Short Story

On the Rocky Road page today a brief word about the short story. You may or may not know that Radio 4 has been a fantastic champion of the short story and short story writers for many years. It provides one of very few opportunities in the UK for both new and established writers to have their short stories broadcast to a large national audience, and for radio listeners to enjoy readings of the short story form. The short story slot on Radio 4  is now under threat from cuts. If you like the short story, why not sign the petition and help save it from being cut on the BBC!
