“Short stories consume you faster. They’re connected to brevity. With the short story, you are up against mortality. I know how tough they are as a form, but they’re also a total joy.” – Ali Smith
We love short stories
The Short Story Station is a team blog dedicated to short stories. The short story is a beautiful form of literature that lets the reader get a glimpse of the world in a single sitting. Even if it’s the novel’s little sibling, it still deserves to be on the limelight.
We believe in the power of the short story
The members of the Short Story Station aim to do the following:
- Explore the art of the short story.
- Write about individual and collected short stories.
- Share features and discussions related to the short story.
- Build an online resource of short stories.
- Develop fellowship with other readers.

“When you read a short story, you come out a little more aware and a little more in love with the world around you.” – George Saunders
