We created StoryMondo as a place where people can share stories that have a connection to places on our planet. We believe that there are many amazing stories from around the world that are not necessarily well known yet. And we hope that StoryMondo will help people discover these stories. Plus, we think that our map is a great way for people to access stories about where they live, work, go on holiday or originally come from.
For writers, we offer free publishing, quarterly competitions and participation in our crowd-sourcing service. For readers, we offer stories as web pages, audio and ebooks. And, for customers, we offer sponsorship of country pages and individual stories plus the opportunity to get a dedicated story via our crowd-sourcing service.
