Reddit has become a huge, expansive website bringing together the best and worst of the online world. With as many subreddits as our collective conscience can create, the website ends up being exactly what you make of it. Between the politics and the memes, there are some incredible subreddits for writers and readers, and r/NoSleep is one of the best. Especially if you’re searching for spooky stories.
If you’re unfamiliar with the subreddit, r/NoSleep is a place for authors to share their original horror stories, and suspension of disbelief is hugely important. Everything is true, even if it’s not.
