A New Way of Storytelling

We love a good fiction writing competition here at Paper, Ink & Thread. And this year sees the result of one of our favourite recent additions to the competitive field. That’s right folks the #Twitterfiction festival bought about by Random house and Penguin publishing has returned for a second year running!


The idea combines storytelling over a multitude of platforms, encouraging participants to get involved using Vine videos, standard 140 character tweets, or any other twitter function to create, sell and tell your story.

What we love so much about this idea is that it allows the idea of storytelling to exist in a three dimensional world. No medium is given higher significance than others, as long as you are getting involved and pushing the boundaries of the Twittersphere then you are doing well. It’s exciting to see where this development of online storytelling will lead us, if this is in fact the future of storytelling.

Good luck to everyone entering, we will be bringing you our personal favourites as the event continues. But until then, happy tweeting!
