Story Crowd-Sourcing Service

StoryMondo operates a story crowd-sourcing service. This means that we receive requests for stories from companies, organizations and individuals. Then we broadcast these requests to all the writers who are signed up with us and invite them to submit stories. Finally our customer chooses the story they like the most and the author receives the agreed fee.

Are you a writer? If yes, please take a look below at the list of currently open requests. We would welcome your stories. To submit a story or ask any questions, please send an email to stories@storymondo.com.

Would you like to request a story for yourself or your organization?  If yes then please send an email to chris@storymondo.com.
