StoryMondo–Where RPCV Writers Might Publish


Dear Writers,

This is to introduce StoryMondo, an exciting new website where you can publish your short stories and verse. But the writing we publish is special. It must have a “sense of place” – it must in some way illustrate features or evoke the atmosphere of a particular location.

We publish two kinds of writing:

Short stories: up to 1,500 words long, these can include folk tales and legends, new or adapted from the old; travellers’ tales about places you have visited; and descriptions or stories that say something about where you grew up or where you live

Verse: haiku, sonnets or other forms of poetry, containing any or all of the elements above

Your writing can be about any topic – but it must always have a connection with real physical places such as cities, mountains, rivers, buildings and countries – and so can be shown by a symbol on the StoryMondo online map

StoryMondo also offers a crowd-sourcing service to companies, organisations and individuals who wish to commission a piece of writing exploring a particular theme and having defined geographical relevance.  Please sign up to receive email requests for your work at

And finally…… StoryMondo runs regular competitions.  The winners receive $100 and their work will be specially featured on the StoryMondo website.  Our current competition is for short stories and the closing date is 30 June 2014.

I look forward to hearing from you at my email address below.

With kind regards,

Desmond Chaffey

Editor, StoryMondo
