SSS stands for Stroud Short Stories.  This is a twice yearly short story competition for Gloucestershire writers.  In addition to the cash prizes the winners read their stories at a special event in Stroud.

SSS has kindly agreed to bring the Cheltenham Prize to the attention of the people on their extensive  mailing list.  In return we invite our readers to visit
