Storytelling aka Kindlemania


Storytelling is back. Kindles are back! The whole crew is assembling. Are you ready?

Yep, it’s time – time to get your creative writing on. Every member who submits a piece receives a kindle – every. single. one. See the full article below for more info & T&Cs!

It’s been a big year since our last Storytelling September and in that time I’m sure you’ve had many moments of inspiration and come up with some truly wild new ideas! Maybe you’ve even thought about writing the sequel to your 2020 story!

Either way, budding authors of Livewire, this is your time to shine!

This is 100% cool beans buuuut where do I start?

Write what you know, be inspired by the works of others, write a stream of consciousness and see where you end up! The possibilities are endless! You could write with paper and pen, on your laptop or phone, or even via text-to-speech!
Take a walk in nature or the city, read a book, watch a movie or listen to music – inspiration is everywhere and often where you least expect it!

Note: all content needs to be Livewire appropriate (PG rated), and your own work. 🙂
