Memories from Books

It is a season of memories. Readomania has launched a wonderful collection of short stories by Amrita Mukherjee, Museum of Memories

And we are celebrating the launch with this contest.

We all have memories to share, memories about people, places, events and things. Yes things, and sometimes of things close to us. We are sure that all you Readomaniacs have your share of memories with your favourite things too, we mean with your favourite books too!

Bingo! That is what we are looking for. So, pick up your writing pads, laptops, phones, tabs, scribble pads and jot down a #FlashFiction around your memories with books. BUT, there is a twist, the story has to be about your dearest memory around any book and you must make a fictional story out of it!

Exciting, Isn't it?


What needs to be done?

Write a story in less than 1000 words around the theme mentioned above and submit it on Readomania, through the contest page. Click on PARTICIPATE NOW.
