Short stories are a fantastic way to engage readers looking to discover their next favourite author, as well as being a wonderful opportunity to try out new ideas or explore the ever growing literary landscapes of different genres.


Visitors to our Short Story interactive pages will have the opportunity to either read directly or download a PDF file - but that's not all. Soon, we'll be bringing you the opportunity to have your short story produced as a "Mini Audiobook"! This means that awesome stories can be enjoyed by anybody regardless if they're commuting, working out, enjoying a bit of nature or simply kicking back in the sunshine with drink in hand. And audio versions will also be featured on our regular podcast.

So what are you waiting for? Fill out the form below and be a part of the brand new Short Story adventure! Currently we are accepting short stories of 5000 words or less across all genres. Please include a link for readers to discover more of your work (website or social media), as well as cover art (if you don't have a cover don't worry - we'll put one together for you!)
