Great -- and free -- online reading

Today's find comes from Jacket Copy, which featured storySouth, an online literary journal of the new South.

In their own words,

storySouth's most important mission is to showcase the best fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry that writers from the new south have to offer. Special emphasis is given to finding and promoting the works of promising new writers.

In addition, storySouth aims to prove that the internet is not just a medium of flash and style; that excellent writing can attract attention without programming gimmicks and hard-to-read fonts. To this end, storySouth practices clean, simple web design.

I appreciate its clean design, but even more important to me is its inexpensiveness. Many online literary magazines offer only a taste for free - just before you're prompted to pay for the full meal. Not so with storySouth. Here you can get it all without paying a dime.

So if you find yourself in work today with nothing to do, browse the selection of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, art, and blogs offered up by storySouth.
