QuarterReads is a market for short fiction, nonfiction and poetry. We like to think of ourselves as something in between the two extremes of tightly curated magazines and free-for-all self-publishing. Work submitted to QuarterReads is always read and reviewed before publishing, and submissions with errors or lacking a coherent story are rejected. We are only asking readers to pay a quarter for each story, but we want to make sure that when they are done reading it, they feel they got more than their money's worth.Length: Up to 2,000 words
As the name suggests, each story on QuarterReads costs one quarter, 25 U.S. cents. Readers who sign up with QuarterReads pay $5.00 (USD) for 20 reads. Every time they decide to read a story, the reader spends one of their reads. Of that 25 cents, 22 are paid into the writer's account. That's 88%. Also, if the reader loves a story, they can "tip" the author either 1, 2 or 4 reads (equivalent to $0.25, $0.50 or $1.00) and 100% of those tips go straight to the writer.
There is no purchase necessary to start submitting your work to QuarterReads (though we'd certainly appreciate it if you became a reader too.)
Payment: .22 cents every time someone reads your story. Payout at $10.
