Why Words for Charity?

We figured if you can run, bike or walk for charity, why not read and write for one?
So we created Words For Charity - the only place where you can publish or buy a short story knowing that your contribution will benefit one of our highly vetted US charities.

If you're a writer, it's the place to get published and validated by our esteemed literary ambassadors.
If you're a reader, it's the place to savor fresh stories written by new writers and culled by creative writing professionals.

The brainchild of Publish For Charity, Words For Charity is a 501c3 not for profit corporation.
But we like to call it "the home of the give-back buzz".

Words for Charity lets me give back to the charities I care most about.

Sonia Koht, Philanthropist

Fantastic place to get exposure and benefit the world.

Daniel Magner, Author Contributor

I love the fact the stories are curated so there's a level of quality not available elsewhere.

Carl Koepke, Avid Reader
