A Story a Day: Month Ten

For this month, I chose at random stories by LGBT+ writers in honor of October being LGBT History Month.

A Story a Day: Month Nine

For this month, I chose (kind of) at random stories from Granta (I ended up needing to purchase a subscription to finish reading Month Three, so thought I’d use them again), the literary quarterly from Cambridge University. I say ‘kind of’ because I scrolled through their list and chose any story that I came acrossContinue reading “A Story a Day: Month Nine”

A Story a Day: Month Six

For this month, I chose stories from web exclusives and archives of Fairy Tale Review, which is an “annual literary journal dedicated to publishing new fairy tales and to helping raise public awareness of fairy tales as a diverse, innovative art form.” As with the previous five months, I have no idea what these storiesContinue reading “A Story a Day: Month Six”

A Story a Day: Month Five

For this month, I wanted to read fairy tales and folklore from other countries (aside from one that is New Orleans based but is about voodoo). I found the stories below through the World Mythology and Folklore website. As with the previous four months, I have no idea what these stories are about – theContinue reading “A Story a Day: Month Five”

A Story a Day: Month Four

For this month, I wanted to read stories specifically by disabled writers. I found the stories below by searching for literary journals that accepted only stories from such authors. As with the previous three months, I have no idea what these stories are about – the goal is simply to experience new writing. Feel freeContinue reading “A Story a Day: Month Four”
