Narrativs

28 October 2012 / 1 comment

Narrativs is a social publishing enterprise that aims to enrich the experience of storytelling by transforming the way we interact with the narrative. Narrativs provides a digital creative space for writers, readers, editors and literary enthusiasts to collaborate, create and present inspiring and motivating pieces of literature.


What makes Narrativs really interesting is that they are planning to create an education fund that will invest in non-for-profit projects that engage and educate underrepresented voices and help them become the next generation of storytellers.


Melbourne-based social entrepreneur Rachel Bui was moved to create Narrativs after attending the One Young World Summit in Zurich where the Crown Prince of Norway, Prince Haakon, spoke about global dignity. Rachel realised that every person potentially has a story to tell and it could affect the life of someone all the way across the world.


Back in Melbourne, Rachel and her team are busy collaborating with writers to publish Narrativs’ featured stories. Rachel plans to reproduce the selected stories online into a printed edition of the Narrativs book in the near future. All profits from this book will be going towards the planned Narrativs Education Fund to assist development projects aimed at promoting literacy.


You can watch a short film by Narrativs named Unbound, narrated by writer Sophie Ward. Unbound explores the importance of connecting with others, writing and what it means to be human in the 21st century … http://youtu.be/4aRhc9sIkk0
