Short Fiction Blogs We Love

It's one of those months where we have one extra Friday in the mix and no more stories to post, so we thought we might direct you to some other blogs that do short fiction too, places we visit to get our creative juices flowing, or to read some excellent stories by other writers. Hope you take a moment to check them out!

My new personal favorite, and not just because I know most of the writers involved is The Hanging Garden, a relatively new short fiction site that uses animated gifs for story inspiration. Genius! And so far the stories are amazing.

American Literature: Okay, so this isn't a young adult specific site, but it has a treasure trove of short stories, many from literary heavy weights and it features a short story of the day.

Another awesome, awesome, awesome young adult/middle grade story site is The Cabinet of Curiosities. The authors involved are all truly unique and so wickedly talented. It has a fairytale, magical vibe to it and the offerings are so creative.

Another good reference for flash fiction/short fiction sites is from The Review Review:, which includes many lit mags that specialize in flash fiction.

How about you? Do you have any sites to recommend? We'd love to hear about them in the comments.
