Bubo short story contest:
Your world, our music
Everyone has a story inside them, but have you ever wondered how does it sound like? At Bubo Technologies, we believe in the power of music to tell stories. Our first-of-its-kind technology brings ebooks and music together to make reading a more immersive and personal experience. And what is more personal than the story that you always wanted to write?
Now we invite talented writers from all over the world to send us their short stories for an amazing opportunity. Winners will have their works published with synchronized music and beautiful illustrations made specifically to be as unique as your stories.
Your text must be between 2,000 and 4,000 words and fit one of these two themes: adult or children’s literature. Winners will sign an agreement prior the publication to ensure that they are 18 years old or older, are the authors of the text and get a percentage of the sales.
Send your short story to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
