Connected. Understood. Alive.

What a year it’s been at One Story. We’ve published 15 more great works of fiction in One Story, seen One Teen Story through its first full year, launched a membership program, and expanded our educational offerings both online and in person.

At the start of each one of these classes, Editor in Chief Hannah Tinti asks her students: How did you feel the first time you read your favorite book?  We keep the answers to this question on a giant post-it note in our office.

ElatedThese words remind us why we do what we do. How we want every reader to feel when they pick up an issue of One Story or One Teen Story. Connected to other readers. Understood by the author. Alive. Excited to be reading, smart and transported to a whole new world.

I am writing to ask you to include One Story in your end of year giving.

Your support will help us when we struggle to pay rent, our authors, and printer bills. Most important, it will ensure that One Story keeps fighting the good fight for literature in 2014 and beyond.

Please support One Story today. Your donation is 100% tax-deductible. Donate before the end of the year and we’ll send you a replica of our Post-it to inspire you in 2014.
