Wordrunner eChapbooks is a hybrid of literary journal and online chapbook, the latter featuring mini-fiction collections by one author that are also available as ebooks. Our annual online journals are themed anthologies of prose and poetry. All authors are paid. Our aim is to make high quality writing available free or at very low or no cost, much like the original chapbooks that were hawked in the streets of 18th and 19th century London for pennies. Web publications are our 21st century chapbooks. In many issues, hyperlinks to photos, videos, background articles, maps, poetry, and artwork add new dimensions to the online reading experience. We are focusing on fiction now, but have published memoir and poetry collections and may do so again.
