QuarterReads describes itself as “A short read at a fair price.” Basically, you read short stories or poems for a quarter. What’s really interesting is what happens for writers. Of that $0.25 you spend on a story, the author of said story receives $0.22. Having things the other way around where the author only gets $0.03 is more common. But that’s not all. If you enjoy the story, you can tip the author an additional, $0.25, $0.50, or $0.75, and all of the tips go to the author.
As someone who usually
writes short stories, you can understand why I’m excited by something
like QuarterReads. But for the site to really take off, requires
readers. So I encourage you to check it out and hopefully find some
stories you like. If you’re curious about my stories, here is my author profile. Right now, I have two stories up, but I’m hoping to add at least one a month.
