Literature for your lunch break.
Every weekday, we feature a short story and host a discussion to spark conversation between readers and writers. Each story has been selected from a reputable magazine and is beautifully written, thought-provoking, and enjoyable to read. Next time you reach for your phone, delve into fresh.ink for a mindful, rewarding literary experience.
Discussions just got an upgrade!
Combined into a single view, you can now like reviews and comments, and respond inline to new, moderator-hosted discussion questions.

Tinder for Readers
Literally exactly what you get. It’s tinder for readers - you pick what genres you like, swipe right on stories that interest you and left on ones that don’t, and that’s it. You pick the genres that most appeal to you and can block genres that don’t. Really fun app for writers and readers!
Easy to use
This app is easy to use...very well designed. I love the easy swiping to select stories. My hesitation in giving it 5 stars is that as a beta reader, there is no way to make notes along the way to make the feedback more useful. Questions came up while I read that I knew I would forget by the end. It feels more like a service to readers than writers (and their revenue model indicates that). I think there is room to balance that better. Quality feedback will attract quality content, a win-win for all.
Developer Response ,
Update: Highlighting and commenting while reading has now launched! You can select any part of a story and leave a comment directly to the author.
Thank you for sharing your feedback! We're excited to say highlighting (with notes) is coming in the next few weeks.
This app is so fun! I’ve already read a few short stories that were great, and just started reading a novel. It is AMAZING. I keep finding myself wanting to discuss it with friends, and then realize, it’s not even published yet!
