If you share our enthusiasm for the stories, poems and memoirs on this site, as well as our conviction that authors should be paid for their work, we hope you will consider supporting us with a donation. Details here.

By early 2015 Wordrunner eChapbooks will have published 24 online chapbooks — 9 fiction, 5 memoir and 5 poetry collections, each featuring one author, and 5 themed anthologies by multiple authors. We are pleased and proud to be showcasing these diverse and talented writers.

Previously published echapbooks may be read in the ARCHIVES or ordered as Kindle or Smashwords books. We are building a back list of e-publications in our e-STORE that can be added to your personal library.

From November 1 through December 31, we are accepting submissions for a multi-authored, themed anthology of fiction, memoir and poetry, to be launched in late January. We are still looking for memoir (by one author) from open submissions throughout the year. (We are no longer publishing poetry collections, though we'd like to see poetry in the anthology.) See submission guidelines.

We don't simply post stories and memoir in these pages. We collaborate with authors to edit their work. Each collection has its own professional design. All authors are paid and there are no submission fees. (But donations will always be appreciated!)

Honoring the "e" in echapbook, hyperlinks to photos, videos, background articles, maps, poetry and artwork add a kind of immediacy that only web-based publication can provide.

Please visit the site again and often. We will be offering our readers a wide variety of original, high quality writing in the years to come.
