Holiday Writing Contest Winners!

Our Holiday Writing Contest

The judges have selected the winning entries in our 2019 Holiday Writing Contest

This contest challenged authors to write a “double chocolate” story for our voice app on Amazon Alexa. A double chocolate story is a bite-sized 2-part tale, with each part represented by a piece of delicious (virtual) chocolate.

The authors were also asked to write in the voice of a virtual chocolatier and add “conversational elements” to their story. After all, the whole point of these chocolate stories is to engage listeners as they interact with an Amazon Alexa smart speaker (or other Alexa-enabled device). 

We received more entries for this competition than we’ve ever received and we’re pleased to announce the winning authors and their chocolate stories:

Congratulations to the winning authors! The Holiday Assortment isn’t available yet, but it should be available very soon. Stay tuned, and in the meantime, open the My Box of Chocolates voice app and listen to the winning stories from our Halloween Writing Contest.

To experience this box of conversational stories, make sure to enable the skill by saying “Alexa, enable my box of chocolates.” After that, you can simply ask Alexa to “open my box of chocolates” whenever you have time to relax and enjoy a bite-sized story and matching virtual candy.
