Named “the gold standard in online literary magazines,” Narrative is the leading publisher of new literature by both celebrated and emerging authors.

With the app you may:

• Listen to and watch authors reading their stories in the Narrative Outloud section.

• Enjoy the Story of the Week, Classics, Features, and our new ultra-short iStories and iPoems.

• Turn on and off sections of the magazine (Fiction, Nonfiction, Cartoons, Poetry, etc.) so that you see only what you’re interested in.
