ShortStops is a new site run by author Tania Hershman, dedicated to raising the profile of the short story in the UK and Ireland. It’s only just launched, but already you can find an expansive list of literary magazines that publish short stories, details of live lit events in the UK and Ireland, and information about contemporary authors of short story collections.

Neon‘s page on ShortStops can be found here, and I’ll be posting an update there every time a new issue is published. It’s exciting to see just how much energy there is in the literary scene in the UK and Ireland, and ShortStops already looks like a great way to keep up with literary magazines, events and authors. Head over to to check it out for yourself, and consider subscribing to the mailing list while you’re over there.
