While many of the stories are up on the website for free, purchasing a book is a great way to show your support for local literature.
We accepted submissions for Best of Ohio Short Stories from writers around the state at all experience levels. Columbus Creative Cooperative then hand-picked the best of those stories to literally bring you the best of Ohio.
This book is more than just a great read. It represents the hard work of local authors doing their best to get that work on the map. Best of Ohio Short Stories features the work of these Ohio authors: David Armstrong, Mark D. Baumgartner, Joseph Downing, Kevin Duffy, Ann Brimacombe Elliot, Scott Geisel, Justin Hanson, Maria Hummer, Brenda Layman, Kelsey Lynne, Alice G. Otto, Brad Pauquette, Brooks Rexroat, Lin Rice, Anna Scotti, Heather Sinclair Shaw, S.E. White and Sara Ross Witt.
Whether you’re coming across the book for the first time, or you’ve already read a few of the stories, we hope you’ll choose to support the authors behind this phenomenal book and purchase a copy. We know you’ll enjoy it.
Thank you for reading local!
