Short Édition is the community publisher for short literature
Short Edition’s aim is to adapt literature to the modern world by combining short literature, the community and technology.
In this way Short Edition uses passion and humour to inspire the community of readers and authors who dare to like short stories.
Created in 2011, Short Edition has generated over 19 million readings of works and now has more than 230,000 reader subscribers to its participatory platform, short-edition.com, designed for reading on the move.
Authors have a contract with Short Edition, their work is protected
9,000 of our authors have been selected and promoted by the readers of the Short Edition community.
They have written the works offered on the short-edition.com platform. The shortest and best are selected to be offered to the public via the Short Story Dispenser.
They have signed a publishing contract with Short Edition which protects them, gives Short Edition responsibility for managing their creative output and enables them to receive royalty payments. Our authors are therefore paid in royalties, every time their work is accessed in a Short Story Dispenser.
