Our current site features translated novels. Now we are taking the next step and working to build a community of English speaking authors!
The 2020 Visions contest is intended to celebrate new authors and excellent writing.
Paid, long-term writing contracts will be offered to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place authors (acceptance of contract will not be required to win any prize )
TapRead is built for longform fiction that is meant to be read in short bites! Stories should keep a fast pace with lots of payoff without losing long-term potential.
We recommend learning from two formats that have mastered this:
- TV Show Style - While a season usually has a major plot, each episode has it's own tension. This style focuses on lots of minor arcs while building to big moments.
- Serial Novel Style - Rather than one big story with lots of small arcs, this style uses medium-sized, high tension arcs. The arcs are tied together by themes and characters, rather than needing to play into one big conflict.
