The Story Week Reader features the best short shorts submitted by fiction writing undergrad and grad students. We're pleased to celebrate the short short form with their fiction, creative nonfiction, stories in graphic forms and one-act plays. We hope these stories resonate with you long after you've read the work. Writing is for the reader. You'll conjure your own adjectives to describe what you read. We're curious to hear what you come up with. Simply click on an issue, and oh, the places you will go.

The Story Week Reader is published by The Publishing Lab at the Department of Creative Writing at Columbia College Chicago.
