Bringing together the work of 8 talented and vibrant authors, Eight Rooms; is a collection of stories designed for the busy reader on the move. Stories are currently being submitted for this international competition with 31st October as the deadline. In contrast to the three previous collections writers were asked to contain their story within the space of one room, without placing any restriction on the time frame. The constriction of the setting will create a broad collection of stories, each one drawing the reader in from the first sentence.The term ‘room’ is open to the writers own interpretation. Overlooked for far too long, the short story can encapsulate everything literature has to offer into a concentrated nutshell. Not only that, but when placed side-by-side, as a collective force, the stories can offer a unique diversity and range simply not possible in the standard novel, for all the latter’s great merits. Particularly in a society that is less inclined to wait and one that is in love with the quick and snappy, the short story seems designed to fit.
