If you are seeking free short stories to read online, you’ve come to the right place! The Writing Shorts Newsletter publishes short stories twice monthly – a featured “short-short” at the beginning of the month in the regular issue, and a bonus “Drabble” in the Extra! edition, which is typically released at the end of the month.
J. R. Nichols is the author of each story, unless otherwise indicated. Some stories are reprints. If an article is a reprint, its original publication medium, if known, is indicated within the newsletter.
