'Alison Gibbs examines how characters are shaped by politics in Nadine Gordimer’s short story, ‘The Catch’: ‘While Nadine Gordimer was known for both her fiction and her outspoken opposition to apartheid in her native South Africa, she always insisted that politics was not the driving motivation for her stories.’

    Thresholds: 'home of the international short story forum' is based at University of Chichester, in West Sussex, England. Operating from 2009 to October 2018, it aimed to 'provide a creative and supportive space for anyone interested in the Short Story form – from Creative Writing and Literature students, to editors, lecturers, writers and readers of short fiction.'

    'Although the short story was a popular feature of many magazines for most of the last century, in more recent years the form has too often been overlooked and undervalued, considered by many to be little more than the means by which aspiring novelists hone their craft.  At THRESHOLDS, however, we have no doubt that the short story is a vital literary form in its own right, deserving of serious critical attention and acclaim.'
