Boy Reading

Welcome to CrowdStoryz, we are about YOUR short stories.

  • Crowdstoryz offers short story Writers, short story Tellers, and people who haven't realized they have a story in them, an opportunity to get PAID for their creativity and work. Writers are not limited to traditional categories here, as we encourage all kinds of stories.
  • Everyone has a short story to tell that others will find interesting. Tell the crowd, including your "peeps".

Featured Category

  • "Living Obits" can be as little as 2 pages. Summarize key moments in your life, friends, family, anyone and update them over the years. People should be imagined as you know them.
    • Have you ever noticed when a famous person passes, the media immediately presents a robust story of their life? These are prepared in advance and updated over time. We should all follow this formula. We should all be known!
