Most of us are diehard fans of Movies made on fictional stories and really appreciate this effort of the Film Industry. But what about an online festival based on the information or events that are not factual but rather imaginary, yes I am talking about Fiction Festival. Twitter has just posted a blog post on their official blog where they have mentioned Twitter will be going to organized a virtual event named as ‘Twitter Fiction Festival’.
This festival will showcase participants for five days (Wednesday, November 28 to Sunday, December 2) from five continents and stories in five languages.
As per Twitter’s blogpost:
Twitter has reviewed many entries from over 20 countries, the TFF’s selection panel has chosen a diverse array of storytelling projects to showcase during the Festival. The external panel was consist of experts from around the publishing industry in the US, but the showcase they’ve selected includes published and novice authors from all over the globe. These special Twitter experiments will be available on a dedicated showcase page during the Festival, starting Wednesday.
Twitter has invited everyone to come (no matter you are writer or reader) and share their stories during these five days of Twitter Fiction Festival along with the selected stories by the Panel which is present on the blog. Twitter will also share your tweets containing your stories from their account @twitterbooks.
Following are some of the instructions or helpful steps which will help you to include yourself in this online festival:
- Create a character and tell a story in his or her voice
- Tell a story from your own account
- Tell a story in a single Tweet
- And you can share anything creative/amazing/attractive which pop-up in your head during the festival but don’t forget to use the #twitterfiction hashtag in your tweets.
Twitter also mentioned that the showcase selections will be available at the #twitterfiction page. You can enjoy the showcase selections at the #twitterfiction page. I am really looking forward to take part in this virtual and worldwide event on world’s best micro-blogging platform.
