Thank you for visiting our website. We are an independent platform that’s passionate about one thing: short stories.

Our aim is to be the primary stop for the best contemporary Short stories in the English language, additionally providing news and views on short fiction.

By hosting a Short story competition every week with a prize of £100, we hope to encourage writers and their use of this wonderful form.

We offer critique services, reviews of Short story collections, and interviews with authors who have published their short fiction.


If you have any thoughts or ideas on how we can improve The Short Story, pleased do contact us.
