the short story project


So... what about your rights, you ask?
That's a d*mn important question!

This is serious stuff, so we’ll just come out and say it: it is our true cause to promote reading around the world, by enabling and promoting writers and their works.


At the Short Story Project, we’ve been working diligently for the last 3 years, to amass a huge community of short story lovers. We’ve been curating short stories for years, from classics to chick lit, from suspenseful stories to gushingly romantic stories.


We believe the world needs short stories, and we’re here to make that happen.

The rights to your works are rightfully yours and will always be yours.

You full permission to use these products as you choose, wherever you choose, and anytime you choose.

When you reach a certain amount of readers, as is explained here, we will record an audio story and/or translate your story in multiple languages

Yes! Since you retain the rights to your stories, you can do with them as you please.

When you publish your story on The Short Story Project, it actually protects your works from copyright infringement.

As soon as the story is published on the Writing Platform, it is “timestamped”, and can therefore, serve proof that you were the first to publish it.
