If you share our enthusiasm for the stories, poems and memoirs on this site, as well as our conviction that authors should be paid for their work, we hope you will consider supporting us with a donation. Details here.

With our current issue, Protected Contact, Wordrunner eChapbooks has published 32 online chapbooks — 15 fiction, 5 memoir and 5 poetry collections, each featuring one author — and 7 themed anthologies by multiple authors. We are pleased and proud to be showcasing these diverse and talented writers, whether they be emerging newbies or old hands with a long list of publishing credits. We read submissions blind, always on the alert for genuinely excellent writing.

Submissions for our spring 2018 themed echapbook anthology are closed. See Submissions page for details on our next open submissions period.

Previously published echapbooks may be read in the ARCHIVES or ordered as Kindle or Smashwords ebooks. We are building a back list of e-publications in our e-STORE that can be added to your personal library. Older issues and the annual anthologies are not available as ebooks but as dowloadable pdf files.

Each collection has its own professional design. We collaborate with authors to edit their work, and all authors are paid.

In many (though not all) issues, hyperlinks to photos, videos, background articles, maps, poetry and artwork add new dimensions to the online reading experience.

Please visit the site again and often. We will be offering our readers a wide variety of original, high quality writing in the years to come.
