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.

Wordrunner eChapbooks has published 26 online chapbooks — 11 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.

Each collection has its own professional design. We collaborate with authors to edit their work. 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.
