Mash Stories is a non-profit storytelling platform that showcases great stories and provides readers with fresh and exciting fiction.

It challenges community members to create a 500-word story using 3 randomly selected words. The winner, selected quarterly, receives $100 and one-to-one coaching to discuss any obstacles that are preventing them from reaching their writing dreams.

We even offer writers a chance to improve their writing through our Mash Club, which guarantees them detailed feedback from professional editors that is longer than the stories themselves, among other benefits.

Whether you’re an avid reader, an amateur writer, a hobbyist or a published novelist, the Mash community is open to you.
