Literary publication Narrative has a new iOS and Android app, that gives readers access to the magazine’s entire back catalog for free. This expands the digital readership of the publication beyond just Kindle.
The app features stories, poems, essays, interviews, cartoons, and features by authors including Joyce Carol Oates, Tobias Wolff, Alice Munro, E. L. Doctorow, and Jane Smiley, among others. The publication will automatically update the app every week with new content including the featured Story of the Week and Poem of the Week. The app also features the “iStory” and “iPoem,” features which are short reads as selected by authors. The idea is to help readers with busy schedules fit literature into their everyday lives.
“Our goal in the evolution of digital media is to encourage and support literature by connecting readers and writers as directly as possible,” stated Tom Jenks, cofounder and editor of Narrative.
