Of course, you can write under a pen name, but we will need your legal full name to generate a contract and issue payments.
Mythrill is focused on serialized science fiction, fantasy and other similar sub-genres.
All stories consist of seasons and episodes.
A solid, entertaining plot with exciting developments and cliffhangers
A narrative that will have readers come back episode after episode
A complex and polished fictional world
Strong character development
All stories must be in English
Please note that we do not accept romance oriented content.
Of course, your story can have romantic elements, characters falling in and out of love, but it shouldn’t be the axis of your story.
Stories on Mythrill have seasons which consist of periodically released episodes.
Each season must have a minimum of 10 episodes.
Episodes must be 750-1500 words
Edited and proofread for grammatical and punctuation errors
End in an exciting way with cliffhangers
Please note that the first few episodes are incredibly important in serialized storytelling.
They will determine whether readers stick with your story or not.
We've found the most optimal word count to be 750-1500 words.
Yes! Of course you can. You don’t have to have a finished story to submit your idea. You can publish your story on our platform with as little as 10-20 episodes.
While it is possible to release stories in this way, it’s prefered not to do so. Serialized stories assume things like often cliffhangers, less descriptions and more action, which isn’t always the case for a standard novel.
We usually accept existing stories only if you either remove your story from other online platforms or continue it exclusively on Mythrill.
We give a preference to stories written originally for Mythrill..
Please note that it’s beneficial for both parties to start something new so we can work together to utilize Lore Cards to the advantage of your story.
We are focused on high-quality content. We evaluate the stories based on a number of things like potential for serialization, worldbuilding elements, your traction on other online publishing platforms as well as the drafts you submit for the pitch.
The writing needs to be polished and clear, with a solid entertaining plot with exciting developments and cliffhangers. Your story must have a narrative that will have readers come back episode after episode, a focus on dialogue, a complex fictional world, strong character development.
We also take a look at the beginning of the story, the hook, and what's the first impression of the audience in the first few episodes.
Please note that the first few episodes are going to be free for readers to decide if they are going to stick with it or not.
How to get exposure for your story.
Since we are focused on premium content, the number of stories we host are limited. This allows us to ensure great discoverability of our stories and run individual marketing campaigns, so creators who join us now, will ensure discoverability of their stories. In addition to sharing your story with your audience, we participate heavily in promoting it. We are going with Content Marketing Strategy for our platform and will be running user acquisition campaigns through promoting the stories, whether it’s organic SEO, ASO, Display Network Advertising or Social Media Ads.
Absolutely not. Mythrill will take care of the marketing and visualisations, by funding and executing them.
How to use Lore Cards to expand your world with visuals and create an immersive reading experience.
Illustrations in Lore Cards will be developed by the Mythrill creative team. If you already have illustrations for your story, they can be used as well.
You will have to provide materials associated with it to Mythrill team. For example, description of the visual asset that needs to be developed, references, specific features that you want to see in the illustration etc.
We will further ask you to provide short descriptions of your Lore.
300-500 word descriptions that can be a backstory of your character, featured in a Lore Card.
With the rare exception of cases where we use visuals made by the author, Mythrill holds the copyrights of the visuals we create. This doesn’t mean we claim any copyright of the characters and materials you created. It simply means that the artwork created for the story by our team should only be used on Mythrill or for promotional purposes of the story on Mythrill.
