TIPS FOR AUTHORS
Writing stories for voice assistants is different than writing traditional short stories. Our voice apps currently use text-to-speech (machine generated) voices to narrate stories. There are limitations to this technology.
Use these tips to improve your chances of getting your story accepted by our editorial staff:
- Keep your story short and to the point (275-word limit).
- Avoid the use of dialogue (does not work well with machine-generated speech)
- Keep in mind our use of virtual chocolatiers. Write from one of their perspectives or write in the third person, so that one of the chocolatiers can narrate your story.
- Listen to previous assortments on any Alexa-enabled device, or listen via SoundCloud, to get an idea of the types of stories we publish.
