Join us in Publishing One Story

Building community has become such an important part of what One Story does. We started the magazine 12 years ago to fill what we saw was a gap—a need for a magazine that presented great short fiction by today’s best authors in a novel way. As the organization grew to include education and literary events, so did what we call the One Story family. Our family is the community of subscribers, writers, students, and supporters that remind us that what we do is more important than simply printing a story on a page.

You are an important part of that literary family. Become a member today!

The cost of a subscription to One Story only covers half of our operating costs. By becoming a member, you will serve a vital role in allowing us to grow and continue to support the short story and the writers who write them. Your membership will be renewable annually and will come with benefits that allow you to participate in the organization in more meaningful ways.
