One Story is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit devoted to promoting short stories and supporting the authors who write them. Our magazines, One Story and One Teen Story, feature one great short story mailed to subscribers every three weeks, allowing readers to experience each story as a stand-alone work of art. Since launching in 2002 we have grown to over 15,000 subscribers.
One Story is a subscription only publication. It is available in print, on Amazon Kindle, and on the Apple Newsstand. Print subscriptions are $21 for 12 issues (within the U.S.). The first two issues are free and, if after receiving your two trial issues, you don’t want to continue receiving One Story, we’ll cancel your subscription free of charge. Order one for yourself, or as a gift today. To order past issues of One Story please visit our store.
Between September and June, all writers can submit their work to One Story online through our Submission Manager. One Story does not accept paper submissions. One Story publishes writers only once, so we are always looking for exciting new voices.
One Story is a nonprofit organization supported by readers like you and by grants from organizations including the National Endowment for the Arts, Amazon, and the New York State Council on the Arts. For more info see the donate page.
