Penguin Tells Stories

Six Writers. Six Stories. Six Weeks: Digital Fiction from Penguin

We tell stories


Penguin has launched We Tell Stories, its most ambitious digital writing project to date. In collaboration with alternate reality game designers SixtoStart Penguin has challenged six of its top authors to create new forms of story - designed specially for the internet.

Over six weeks, writers including Booker-shortlisted Mohsin Hamid, popular teen author Kevin Brooks, prize-winning Naomi Alderman, bestselling thriller author Nicci French, young British novelist Toby Litt, popular thriller author Charles Cumming, and debut author Matt Mason, will be creating tales that give readers everywhere a unique, immersive and innovative experience. These stories could not have been written 200, 20 or even 2 years ago.
