no man publishing has been established to liberate storytelling from the confines of authorship. We believe that stories should belong as much to those that read them, as to those who write them – perhaps more so – after all, stories live and breathe more in the minds of readers than writers.
Think about it: how many minds have translated words into a world where Hogwarts and all the magic found therein is real? How many of those millions of minds belong to JK Rowling?
Which isn’t to say that storytellers won’t get their due here – if you tell a story that millions want to read then you’ll do very nicely indeed. The only difference is that here, story is boss.
So if one of your readers wants to add to your story, or remix it, write a prequel or sequel – they can – because the story belongs to them too.x.
That’s the essence of it.
If you are a storyteller you might want to know a bit more about how to submit a story, and how the business end of things actually works, you can read more about that here.
If you simply love stories and want to read, share, and possibly even expand on what you discover, our first story, The Knife, is available to download for free from Smashwords. Get in touch to let us know what you think of it or submit your own remix.
