The Ultimate Guide To YA Short Stories By Your Favorite YA Authors

Back many moons ago on the Hey YA podcast, Eric said something about Stephenie Meyer having written a short story for an anthology back in the day and how readers who want more should go seek it out. That, in my brain, set off some gears. Why don’t we know about some of the individual authors within these amazing YA anthologies and what they’re contributing? Sure, we can look through each book’s table of contents, but what about a table of contents that allows readers to explore the shorter works of their favorite authors more broadly? The idea stewed in my head for a long time. Until now! Welcome to the ultimate guide to YA short stories by your favorite authors.

I’ve scoured through YA anthologies past and present—up to 2019—and pulled together an index to their contents by author. This is meant to help you seek out stories by your favorite authors,  with a guide to the books in which they appear. Call it my librarian brain or my completionist desires, but it made sense to me to organize this information for others who, like me, sometimes just want to read a handful of short pieces by a single author.

There are a lot of limitations here, so bear this in mind.

This index to YA short stories does not include short stories which are interconnected in an anthology. That leaves out quite a few books, but not as many as one might anticipate. Shaun David Hutchinson’s anthologies and Hungry Hearts edited by Elise Chapman and Caroline Tung Richmond are examples of this type of book. It also doesn’t include short story collections by a single author, as those are easy enough to track down. Holly Black and Kelly Link are two, among many others, who’ve done solo short story collections.

These YA short stories stick to major publishers only, as tracking down the information about titles and authors in smaller books, as well as those that served as either Kickstarter or fundraiser-created anthologies is challenging.

I’ve used my knowledge of YA to whittle down the index here to YA authors who are well-known, well-published, or new and emerging voices. Some haven’t yet published a YA title, while others haven’t done so in quite a while. I’ve pulled from these lists YA short stories by adult authors who haven’t written for YA otherwise. This it to keep it limited to YA short stories by YA authors.

Category ID: 476
Category ID: 468

Short stories below are organized by author’s last name. Each of the stories and their respective anthologies are listed below the author, and in cases where stories are coauthored, the story appears under both author names. I haven’t included descriptions of the story because that’s impossible without having read them all. But by including the book in which you can find the story, it should give a good idea of the themes the story might have.

Some of these books might be out of print, since they’re beyond ten years old. But chances are you can track them down at a library, and some of the authors may have republished these stories on their websites or elsewhere, depending on whether or not they own the republication rights.

Again, this isn’t comprehensive, but it is pretty robust and, I hope, useful for readers seeking YA short stories by their favorite YA writers. It’s my hope to keep this list active and updated annually, as more anthologies publish and more YA writers have their stories in them.

If you find yourself itching for more, you can also dig into this roundup of free YA short stories online.
