Slush Stories



Regular readers might recall a few rants on this site about the current state of the English language, but I’m also frequently astonished at the quality of writing out there. You can stumble across a witty, erudite blog without even trying.

Similarly, given a chance, most people can churn out a good tale. Which brings us to myself and seven friends and our little writing group called Slush. Amazingly, this regular gathering of friends to write stories, listen to them, and generally get together and have a laugh has endured for over six years now. In that time we’ve churned out a lot of good stories, and even won an award (the Malvern Newsheet Writers Award for an anthology by a writering group).

A few nights ago I sat down and gave the website an overhaul and bought a new domain name (, so now’s a good time to introduce you to Slush: about seventy-five short stories, numerous short writing exercises, and pages and pages of damn good reading.
