Bristol Storyfest 2015: Bristol Story Trail
The Story Trail created a fun and exciting exploration of Bristol by following a series of short fictions. Story locations were sought out based on a street or building and, once found, they revealed a QR code unlocking a link to a short story associated with that place. By following the trail and discovering locations, new secrets and tales were revealed in places which were previously unnoticed. Each visit back forged new memories as part of the city's annual Storyfest.
My Short Story: Bristol's Own Oasis is published online.
Publisher: Dream of A Shadow.
Publication Date: 16th February 2015.
The text of the story can be found online: in my personal portfolio.
