Amazon has announced a new publishing imprint, Amazon Original Stories, a collection of short fiction and nonfiction works which will be free to Prime and Kindle Unlimited members. The imprint will publish all short fiction and short nonfiction works that can be read in one sitting, perfect for all those rush hour rides on the bus or subway.
“The goal of Amazon Original Stories is to champion stories, essays, and reporting by the premiere storytellers of our time and to introduce unforgettable new voices to Prime and Kindle Unlimited members,” said Julia Sommerfeld, Editorial Director of Amazon Original Stories, in a statement. “As we’ve seen through the great response to work available through Kindle Singles, powerful stories can be told in a single sitting and are another wonderful outlet for writers to reach readers. We plan to introduce new storytelling experiences in the coming months.”
