Gripping fiction stories (they can be fun, romantic or scary… or all at once!);
Family-friendly, appropriate for the Duolingo audience;
Written in English (If selected, your story will likely be modified/simplified. We'll handle translating it prior to publishing it on Duolingo Stories);
Self-contained. Your story has to have a clear narrative arc: something has to happen in it. If nothing happens, then it isn’t right for us. And at the end, the story should have some kind of resolution (i.e. it ends in a clear and final way). Imagine that you are telling this story to your friends: you have to include anything that’s dramatic, funny or interesting, because you want to entertain them!
