StoryADay is a creativity challenge and online community, centered around the StoryADay May short story challenge (write and finish a story every day in May).

The challenge repeats each September. Throughout the year, StoryADay features weekly Write On Wednesday writing assignments, as well as short story reviews, articles on creativity, productivity and the craft of writing. It is also home to the weekly StoryADay podcast.


StoryaDay May was founded in 2010 by Julie Duffy, after a long, unproductive Pennsylvania winter. She chose May because April was Poetry Month and StoryADay May rhymed! Now, May is known Short Story Month, celebrated by writers, publishers and the wider reading community.

Praise for StoryADay

StoryADay has been chosen as one of Writer’s Digest’s 101 Best Websites for Writers annually since 2017, and its podcast was named one of their favorite podcasts for writers.
