Short Story Project Overview

The Short Story Project was founded in the late 2016 by Iftach Alony.

The project website publishes short stories from all around the world both in text and audio, and offers an open stage for upcoming and emerging writers. The Short Story Project staff translates, records and publishes short stories that are read and listened to by over 500,000 people worldwide.

“The Short Story Project is the desire for wandering and discovery, a passion for the spirit of imagination, a passion for contemplation...The Short Story Project was founded upon the belief that reading is an experience that can make a difference. An experience that enables reflection on the human condition, inspires empathy and encourages examination”

- so says the project’s founder, Iftach Alony, in the "Our Story" page.

The project website is always doing its best to promote reading in these digital times and find the best short stories out there for people to enjoy, on different kinds of media. Spanish, German and Hebrew versions are featured as well. For phone & tablet users, both the project Apple app and the Android app are available for free install.
