Inbox Stories

Get a story in your inbox every month.

Inbox Stories is an email list that sends a short story to your inbox every month. We also include a recommendation for another story we loved, and a recommendation from someone else in the Inbox Stories community. The recommendations are always free. Sign up at $5/year to get the link to the full text of the monthly story.

Subscribers are also entered into the monthly drawing for a free ebook that we run for our main newsletter. (Yes, if you're on both lists, you are entered twice!)

Subscribe to the paid or free mailing list below. Or, subscribe to the paid list here or the free list here.

Stories will be a mix of public domain stories and short writing that we've published. The newsletter generally arrives on the third Monday of the month. Have a story to recommend for a future newsletter? Tell us about it!

Important Notes

No matter which list you choose, we'll never sell or share your email address. The paid subscription is non-refundable: You can cancel at anytime, but we cannot return a pro-rated portion of the subscription fee. If you want to downgrade from the paid to the free subscription, you can cancel your paid subscription and then re-subscribe to the free list. Free subscribers will see see the opening paragraphs of the story of the month, but won't have links to get the full text.
