Hailed by Fast Company as “One of the 10 Most Innovative Media Companies in the World,” we publish original fiction and nonfiction e-shorts by top authors such as Amy Tan, Margaret Atwood, Jon Krakauer, Nick Hornby, Sebastian Junger, and more. These e-shorts are written to be read in two hours or less, and can be purchased individually through major digital bookstores. The entire Byliner Originals library is also available online to Byliner subscribers, who get access to premium content from Byliner's by-invitation community of writers--including thousands of rarely-seen and exclusive stories from bestselling authors.
