Read On: After Summer and Other Stories

An anthology of new writing for young people.

We asked teenagers to commission an anthology of short stories. The result is an incredible selection of stories from UK and European writers that are set to thrill, inspire and entertain.

Our commissioned UK writers – Liam Brown, Ken Preston and Emma Purshouse - will talk about their approach to writing to an unusual brief, and read short excerpts from their stories.

This event is part of the Birmingham Literature Festival's Read On EU Day.

All day, young writers and readers aged 12 to 19 will be performing, presenting, hosting and producing events as part of the Birmingham Literature Festival 2019. The day is presented as part of
Read On EU, a Europe-wide project getting young people across the continent reading and writing.

You can join in from home, too, on the Read On EU
website: upload book reviews and your own stories; get advice on books you might like to read; and chat to authors you admire.
