I emphasize "short". Short stories, relatively short novellas, short nonfiction pieces. Not even a novella that's long for a novella, please. Short.
Collections of such things are fine, and individual such things are fine too.
I don't particularly care about the genre, except please no Harlequin Romance sorts of things, and nothing that's specifically and essentially only for children. "Enjoyable by children" is fine, though; so for example Alice's Adventures in Wonderland would be fine (if not for its length, which is too long for what I'm looking for), but no Berenstain Bears, please. Other than those couple restrictions on the genre, I don't care - if you think it's great, that's what I want to hear.
Regarding "legally", I'm in the USA. I'm totally up for really old things or relatively old things that are out of copyright, and for newer things that are given away for free (without needing me to jump through some sort of hoops - e.g. I don't want to sign up for an account or a mailing list or whatever), as long as you think they're great.
Thanks in advance.
