International Short Story Festival
Publishers may be snooty about the short story, but it is a form that many writers - and readers - love. Everyone from Tolstoy to Hemmingway tried his hand in this medium, not to mention Edgar Allan Poe. If you're a fan of the genre then this festival will expose you to the best in new Polish and international literature, and give readers a chance to directly interact with artists. Dan Rhodes, Zoran Ferić, Georgi Gospodinow and Kate Griffin are amongst the lauded names to have taken part in previous years.
