CellStories offers free short stories
A website launched on Tuesday will post a short story every weekday to any Web-enabled cellphone for free.
Readers are welcome to submit their own stories. They should be around 1500-2000 words, the equivalent of 10-15 minute read.
Created by Dan Sinker, who teaches journalism at Columbia College Chicago, CellStories.net is not limited to any particular gadget and is designed to be as simple as possible to work on any handheld mobile device with Web access.
... Among authors who have pledged to contribute to what promises to be an outlet for literary writing is 2008 Story Prize finalist Joe Meno. Authors will not be paid as the site is not yet designed to make money, Sinker said.
