How could I not love the Bristol Short Story Prize?
Most of the pictures on their website are of people writing and reading short stories on benches!
So it's a particularly thrill to be invited to speak at their prize presentation this year.
You can find out more, and read an interview that I did with the talented Ellen Grant, a writer and student at Bath Spa University here. I particularly liked her last question: 'And finally, would you rather be re-incarnated as Samuel Taylor Coleridge or Samuel L. Jackson?'.
However, nothing really beats an interview I once did in America during which I was asked, 'what sort of cake are you?'
