Twitter to Host Fiction Festival in November

Twitter will host a Twitter Fiction Festival in November, inviting ”authors and creative storytellers around the world to push the bounds of what’s possible with Twitter content” with submissions.

Our sibling blog AllTwitter alerted us about the event. Anyone can submit to the new festival, and Twitter will choose a line-up of authors to feature during the event. If you end up submitting to the festival, include a link to your work in the comments section! Check it out:

If you’d like to take part in the Twitter Fiction Festival, submit your idea here. Tell us how you are going to explore content formats that already exist on Twitter — short story in Tweets, a Twitter chat, live-tweeting — or, even better, how you’ll create a new one. How will you work with our real-time global platform, where anyone can contribute to your story at any moment? The proposal must fit into the time window of our five day festival— but that means that a project could run for the length of the festival, or just for an hour. We’ll announce the selected authors and festival agenda on Monday, November 19th and the festival itself will kick off on November 28th. We look forward to reading all of your stories.
