Writers. If you are a writer of short stories, were born in Bonnie Scotland (or have a strong Scottish connection) and are fed up looking for a local outlet to showcase your finished work, this could be the site for you. Just click on or tap the Submit button to send us your stories. All genres and themes are welcome – but no more than 5,000 words per story, please! We're looking for quality writing to showcase, so if we think your story fits that bill we'll upload it on the site for the world to read and rate.
Readers. If you enjoy reading quality short stories, this could also be the site for you. Just hover over the Read button and choose whether you want to see the latest stories on the site or whether you want to select from our extensive archive.
If you do read a story, please remember to take a moment to rate your enjoyment of it. Remember also that you don't need to have been born in Scotland to read and rate our stories!
If you fancy getting your teeth into something longer than a short story, you may want to give our serials a go. This is where we’ve serialised longer works by some of our regular McStorytellers and by a few weel kent authors from the past. Just hover over Oor McSerials and take it from there.
You may also be interested in checking out our publications. In addition to our own anthologies, we’ve published a large number of books on behalf of our regular McStorytellers. They include short fiction, crime, mystery, sci-fi, humour, literary fiction and biography, not to mention many volumes of McLimericks. Just hover over Oor McBooks and take your pick.
McBlog. And, of course, whether you are a writer or a reader, you can check out our blog for news of this site, our latest uploads and our latest publications.
