A.M. Homes, writer most recently of the novel This Book Will Save Your Life
and the memoir The Mistress’ Daughter,
is the current author of One Story
issue #139: “Omega Point: Or, Happy Birthday, Baby.” She, along with Happy Ending, has something to say about the consistently stellar fiction that One Story puts out, and why it is, in part, up to us to keep it coming. The non-profit lit mag, which delivers brand new content to its subscribers every three weeks, provides a truly original way to showcase debut fiction, and to give us our favorite-author-fixes in between book publications. It’s truly one of a kind, y’all, so heed A.M. Homes’ words after the break…
I’m writing to ask you to join me in supporting One Story by making a special year-end donation.
Next year, One Story will publish its 150th issue. It is hard to believe the magazine has done so much in just 8 years. Back in 2002, One Story saw a gap in the literary publishing industry—one that existed between quality short fiction and audiences of eager readers. They set out to bridge that gap, and introduced a simple, elegant idea that was welcomed by the publishing world.
Now more than ever, it is harder to introduce great stories to new readers. And yet One Story
continues to do so year after year, consistently winning awards and recognition for their editorial efforts. I wanted my story to appear in One Story
because they care about short fiction like no other magazine. Because they respect the importance of narrative, and take risks on young writers and odd stories. Because they focus on helping authors at every point in their careers. Because when you publish in One Story
, you’re part of a family.
Your support is truly appreciated and will make an indelible mark on the state of the short story and its authors. Thank you.
