Outside of a college classroom, a relatively small portion of the population actively seeks out short stories to read—which means that writing short stories is rarely profitable. But Writer’s Relief found an exciting new website called Curious Fictions that’s hoping to change that.
[Tanya] Breshears told me that she knows readers who care about fiction but “weren’t really aware of short fiction.” There’s no dearth of short fiction magazines, but “it’s hard to pay for, and harder to read on mobile.” At the same time, she was convinced that many readers would enjoy, and pay for, short stories if she made things easier. (The recent viral success of “Cat Person” seems to back this up.)
