The Short Story Project: The Spotify of Short Stories

We already have at our fingertips short stories, haikus and more. All in one app. Literature for iPhone, for Samsung and so on …



The stories take advantage of new technologies so as not to be overlooked in everyday life in which reading isn’t trending anymore. The Short Story Project created a platform as an independent and non-profit editor: it publishes short, fresh, undiscovered stories, and makes them available to the world in a curated, translated and audio collection.

“Stories that go beyond the line” is the slogan of this initiative. Its mission is to create a “storytelling” community that transcends the borders of its countries, languages ​​and cultures. This has been achieved by its founder, Iftach Alony from Israel. This architect is the editor in chief since 2016 and manages a team with people from Argentina, Germany and even Ecuador. Among his collaborators is the Guayaquil native journalist María Fernanda Ampuero.





Just as there are a variety of nationalities in the team, the authors that are published on the platform today are from countries around the world translated into Spanish, English and Hebrew. The library and collection that The Short Story Project intends to build is one of cultures and experiences of individuals from all over the world written for everyone. Stories of love, humor, suspense and even world classics are published on its website, now complemented by an application available in the Apple Store and Google Play.

Registering on any of its platforms allows a more personalized experience in a library where you can find stories by theme, reading times, language and even in audiobooks. Each reading brings with it recommendations from new, emerging writers or the classics from which we’ve already heard.

These short stories available to everyone is the purpose of the project: “That the short narrative be a vital and effervescent presence in contemporary culture, and allow the voices of writers from all over the world to be heard and disseminated.”
