diverse short stories

Just a quick post for today! I’ve been scouring the internet for some diverse short stories (two things I’m trying to increase my awareness of!) and I found a couple of gems…

Hungry Daughters of Starving Mothers


This is a story by Alyssa Wong, which won the 2015 Nebula Award for Best Short Story. She’s been shortlisted for a variety of competitions, and in my mind, she is definitely one to watch!

Memories We LostMqombothiA South African writer, Lidudumalingani Mqombothi has published a truly fantastic story. Originally published in ‘Incredible Journey: Stories That Move You’, Memories We Lost cannot be missed.

Written by a (very!) young author, this is an own voice tale of Inuit myth and culture.

A Cup of Salt Tears


Finally, this is a short story by Isabel Yap that I really cannot do justice to. It is scary and loving and awful and brilliant. Her other story published on that site, Milagroso, is fantastic too.

Do you have any diverse short story recs? Please leave a comment, I’d love to check out more. 🙂
