For six years, storySouth's mission has been "to showcase the best fiction, creative nonfiction, and poetry that writers from the new south have to offer." Its aim is to inform the world that, like the new South, the writing of the "21st century south is a mix of traditional and new, regional and international." The website design is simple and clean, something on which they pride themselves. Visitors can just sit back with a cup of coffee and enjoy a good read by perusing the new offerings in the "Poetry", "Fiction", and "Nonfiction" sections found on the homepage. The "News" section of the site, which is on the right hand side of the page, includes book reviews and mp3 recordings of fiction and poetry readings. Visitors interested in submitting work can click on "guidelines" on the right side of the page to get information on submission periods, author's rights, the site's rights, and technical details. The Million Writer's Award, established by the founder of the site, is given each year to the best short story published online. Details about the award can be found in the lower right hand corner of the homepage.
