One email a week. One story a week. All classics. No garbage.

Short Story Thursdays is a weekly, email-based, governmentally recognized not-for-profit short story organization. Simply email to join. Every Thursday a classic short story will appear in your inbox, both in .doc and .pdf format for your smartphone or tablet, along with an introduction to the selection written by Jacob Tomsky. And that’s that. All he asks is that you read the stories (or at least start with the intro emails). This project is designed to inject literature into your life on a weekly basis in a way that’s never been done before.

Please sign up. Please read. It’d mean a lot. Again, email
