Another interesting literary prompt for all the fiction writers and story tellers out there...
As you all must be aware that our Publishing Partner Writersgram Publications have brought forth this new and one of its kind venture 'Audio Book Publishing' in their publishing platform. Thus we again have come forward working in collaboration on a new project and to bring to you this unique new literary prompt of getting your voice published in an audio book compilation.
This prompt was inspired by Ananya Mukherjee's story telling sessions on her timeline. And the good news is that not only she is going to judge this literary event but also the first story would be in her voice in the book.
Starting from today i.e. 1st of August 2020, the prompt is now open and we are eager to receive your submissions. You just have to record your voice while telling the story. No visuals are required. Then send that file to
The theme of the story telling prompt is ghost or paranormal stories. You have 10 minutes of audio timing so write your stories accordingly. You have to begin telling a brief synopsis of your story first, then start telling your story. The narration, the way of story telling with expressiveness and the content, these will be the judging criteria.
Three winners will get Ananya's book 'Ardh- Satya' as their prize and the best part is that all the chosen narrations would be compiled into an 'Audio Book' under the banner of Writersgram Publications.
So grab your quill and start weaving that scary story that would give the chills and thrills to your audience.
The contest opening date is 1st of August and it will end on 20th of August 2020.
