From the Press Release:
The Great Jones Street (GJS) short fiction app and Medium, the online publishing platform founded by Twitter co-founder Ev Williams, have agreed to make premium short fiction by some of today’s most talented and prolific writers from GJS available on Medium.
Each day a new GJS story, or a chapter from the historical fiction serial “Reversing the River” by Leslie Pietrzyk, will be featured on Medium’s homepage as Lit from Great Jones Street and will be included in Medium’s lit, science fiction and fantasy, horror, and crime collections. Medium will also curate the stories based on its readers’ choices of topics and interests, matching the right story to readers most likely to enjoy them.
Audio versions of the Great Jones Street stories, read by their authors, will soon be available to Medium subscribers via the Medium Play List.
Offering perfect bite-sized entertainment and a welcome break in today’s fast-paced world, Great Jones Street is the largest annual purchaser of short fiction. The app curates thousands of stories in every genre for fans to read, listen to, or stream in 5-, 10-, or 15+-minute bursts – satiating appetites for premium fiction, beautiful aesthetics, audio from writers, and a community of writers and readers.
“Thousands of people use Medium to share what they are thinking about – basically to tell their story,” said Kelly Abbott, co-founder and CEO of Great Jones Street. “The creative writers we publish on Great Jones Street are doing the same, providing their perspectives through their chosen medium – short fiction. There’s a natural marriage between non-fiction and fiction in communicating what matters to all of us – love, family, hope, our shared aspirations and challenges, and our basic human need to communicate through stories.”
