About

Welcome to 52ShortStories.com!

If you found the page through Facebook then an introduction may not be necessary.  But for those who didn’t, please read on and find out why this page exists today.

How much do you write?  Have you ever set a goal to write a short story per week?  Ever thought about having a deadline to finish at least one short story every seven days?  If you have then you’ve found a place on the web where you are with like minds.

This page is dedicated to Ray Bradbury and his challenge to aspiring writers to write a short story each week for a year. And it’s also dedicated to those who take the challenge and grow as writers because of it.

I am not a professional writer, but some people you might find reading this page or submitting their work here are professionals.  Professional or amateur, writers need practice.  No author seemed to understand the value of practice more than Ray Bradbury.  His advice to other writers was practical, while still being emotional and sometimes a bit mystical.  It was a piece of advice he gave an audience filled with authors that compelled me to start the Facebook community which in turn gave birth to this blog.

To learn more, please visit our Facebook page.

If you would like to contribute to this website please send a private message on the Facebook page.  Posting a comment on the page will work too.

If you have your own blog about writing 52 short stories in one year and would like a link from this website in the other resources page (soon to come) please follow the instructions above in order to make contact.  I will be happy to include a link to your website so long as the material relates to Ray Bradbury’s challenge to write one short story per week for a year.
