I first heard about One Story last year during a book talk by Elizabeth Gilbert. She raved about what a great way it is to discover new writers, and I totally agree! Every three weeks or so, they mail (or digitally deliver) a new short story, usually 20-30 pages long. I have been a subscriber since last year, and I love getting the envelope in the mail. Recently, I gave my mom a subscription for her birthday, and now we have our own little book club. It’s great!
The kind people at One Story have extended a discount offer to Practically Poppy readers. Subscribe using promo code “POPPY” and you will get 15 issues for only $15 (normally $21)! It’s a great deal to support creative writing (and have some fun mail to look forward to). Later this year, I’ll review some of my favorite One Stories, so I hope you’ll read along!
