Odd Directions is a writing community founded by Tobias Malm. It is a place for everyone who loves to write and/or read horror, weird fiction, and dark science fiction.


We promote new writing talents by arranging short story contests and by highlighting the most popular stories on our channels. You can publish your stories here and if your story gains popularity within the community or wins a competition you’ll be offered to have it narrated on our YouTube channel and boosted on social media together with your credits. We also run a Discord channel where you can interact more directly with us and other writers and readers.


So far, this community is a non-commercial enterprise and as such depends on your donations to keep going and grow, hence we kindly ask of you to consider donating some of your money to our Patreon.
