Where App Meets Litmag


Here’s an interesting way to consume new short fiction: Connu, a sort of cross between an app and a litmag, will send you one short story every weekday.

The stories are brand new and written by established authors and their protégés, including Joyce Carol Oates, Sam Lipsyte, Aimee Bender, and Lydia Davis.

Connu is currently raising money with a Kickstarter campaign. Donate if you feel like it—the rewards look seriously worth it.
