Coffee Shop QR Code Site Seeks Submissions

South Carolina-based writer Tim LeVan Miller has launched a new platform to bring short stories to readers in independent coffee shops called Sips Card.

Essentially, readers can read a story with the free card. Readers can scan the QR code and read the story while they drink their drink.

The Sips Card website explains how it works: “Customers at participating venues can pick up a Sips Card with their drink order. Each card contains a QR code, loaded with a short story from an independent writer meant to last as long as their drink. The cards are venue specific and include their business information as well as that issue’s author, story title, and website.”

eBookNewser has more: “The site is currently looking for submissions for short stories through March 16th. Authors don’t have to pay an entry fee and they retain the rights to their story. Entries should be limited to 3,000 words.” Follow this link to find out more about how to submit.

Editor’s Note: The original version of this post did not make it clear that the Sips Card is free.
