Our miniature donkey, Oatey, is small but she packs a kick——just like the work we publish.

Short Reads is a free literary magazine that features one short essay delivered directly to your inbox every Wednesday. For now, we are an all-volunteer-run publication.

We are working toward becoming a nonprofit organization, which will allow us to pursue grants and donations.

In the meantime, if you'd like to support our efforts, we accept tips of any amount. Buy us a coffee or help defray some of our start-up costs.
