Story Shop Success – Vicki Jarrett

March 20, 2015

Last Thursday Looking Glass Book was packed for the launch of The Way Out, a new collection of short stories by Vicki Jarrett.

Vicki is an alumna of the Trust’s Story Shop project, held every year in partnership with Edinburgh International Book Festival, where she read Loving the Alien which also appears in the collection. Her debut novel Nothing is Heavy was published in 2012 by Linen Press and shortlisted for the Saltire Society Scottish First Book of the Year Award.

You can find out more about the collection, The Way Out, at freightbooks.co.uk. This year’s Story Shop will open for submissions shortly, so keep an eye on our website and online for how to enter.
