    Where can I post short-stories for free?

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by jreader1919, Oct 19, 2014.

    Is there a site where I can publish my stories for free and get some kind of feedback on my writing? Thanks!

    ????? What does the poll question have to do with the OP question?

    Welcome to the forum. Stick around, read the rules, join the conversations, meet the minimum requirements and you can post stories for critique in the workshop. And if the stories fit the short story contest theme, you can enter them in the contests (every three weeks) even as a brand new member. The current contest theme and a link to the thread is below in my sig. You have about 6 more hours to enter the current contest and three weeks to get in on the next one.

    Hi, Jreader not sure about the poll. But as for your question I agree with Ginger - you an enter the weekly contest or you can
    post your work on Smashwords for free. ( as long as you know what you're doing - it has to be formatted according to their rules ( and they have content restrictions )

    When you say publish, do you actually mean publish, or are you simply talking about posting your work online for critique? If it's the latter, the Workshop on this site is a great place for that. If you're talking about actually publishing your stories, you could start a blog and enable comments so that people can post their thoughts. But if you're going to publish, you may as well submit your stories to a magazine and get paid for it.

    And there are non-paying magazines like Black Petals who accepted my story.

    I meant a site that has an established reader base and I can post my short-stories for them. When I talk about feedback, I mean comments, likes, shares, etc.

    And as far as the poll goes, I'm just curious as to how easy it is to translate my works.

    I used to think DeviantArt was a good site but these days I'm not so sure. If I put something on there I'd fear being ripped off. Yet I'd be remiss if I didn't say that I know of people who have published entire stories on there and gone on to self-publish compilations online.

    Hey Marivian, what is there to fear about being ripped off? How can I be ripped off?
