I have always loved to write short stories, but since I have been out of high school I really have not had any time or motivation to do so. Within the past few weeks I have made time to do so and was wondering of there are any good sites to publish these stories on when I finish them? I don't think I really want to just make a hub on a short story.
You should star reading quarterlies and lit magazines. The Strand, McSweeneys, The Southern Review, and publications by major universities in your area are all great places to start reading/submitting. These are just a few more literary themed ideas. For genre markets, pick up a copy of The Writer's Market. It has valuable information on legitimate publishing options if you wish you be professional about this. Best of luck!
Figment.com & Authonomy are both good websites to post any stories. (:
Why not publish them on HubPages? A lot of people do. There may be better places, I honestly don't know but a lot are published here. If you have an established group of followers here, then it might be a great place to start, get feedback and hone the craft. Good luck!
Short stories don't do too well on hubpages, after the initial interest the seem to pull your scores down..not that I care about score .. but it does happen.
Thanks psycheskinner, that suggestion could help me too!!
I agree too with posting them on here. I only put up a few, to test out. They have received a bit of attention. I used to use WritersCafe, but after a while the work on there really lowered in standards and criticism was ... I couldn't understand what any of the posts meant, let alone get feedback on my work. The internet will always be tough on short stories, I think.
Duo Trope.com is definitely worth checking out! Again, don't be afraid to post a hub (unless it is score that you want to protect). I'm sure some hubbers would be happy to read and review for you!
One option might be to build a collection of short stories then publish them as an ebook.
Maybe I should check out those too! I have written quiet a few and kept them as I am not hesitant to post them here... thank you nooser :>)

Hi, I am a young adult and juvenile fantasy writer and would like to write short stories to publish on Hubpages. Is this a good fit for Hubpages? I notice many of the articles under poetry, books and writing ask questions or do book reviews.
