Scribd Brings Connu Stories to Subscription Library

scribdappScribd has partnered with literary app Connu, to make stories from the international digital literary publication available to Scribd eBook subscribers.

Connu was founded by editors Susannah Luthi and Niree Noel, who had previously collaborated on the Southern California Review. The idea was to create a place where readers could find curated stories and discover new writers. Writers in the publication include: David Sedaris, Joyce Carol Oates, Ron Carlson, Janet Fitch and Lydia Davis.

Under the terms of the partnership, thirty of the publication’s most popular stories are now available with a Scribd subscription. A new story will be featured every week in Scribd Selects. Readers can access Scribd’s entire eBook library for a subscription fee of $8.99 a month.
