Lots of great short fiction, poetry, and essays here.

- Exquisite Corpse
Self described as a “Journal of Letters and Life” this site looks like a newspaper but it is not. Oh boy, is it not. Full of stories, poems, multimedia, book reviews, and other goodies.
An offshoot of ESPN, this site combines sports and all things pop culture (movies, music, TV, fashion, etc) in some really fantastic writing.

A literary journal for the mostly alive. Wait, what?
So much great writing here. Funny, witty, and always interesting. One of my favorite sites on the Internet.
