Dystopian Futures - Discord Group
This post is due to many people wanting to Create the voice files for The Short Stories I create which revolves on Dystopian Futures, Humanity and many other ideas. This is the Discord group keep in mind it is still in RAW format.

Chronopolis - Discord Group

I am looking for voice talent see post below for more details.

I would like to make some AudioBooks out of them, I am looking for people who are very great at reading with personality and are able to give the listener a sense of being part of the book.


I am not looking for experienced Voice Over talent I am looking for Steemians that are English speakers, character actor and improv artist. A smooth, professional and polished vocal style. That are capable of delivering recorded material to me in mp3, m4a, wav, or aiff formats.

If you are able and willing to provide I will pay 5 SBD per AudioClip of the story done, please keep in mind the Stories are very unique and should require a unique voice. They are between 500-800 words, I currently have about a dozen short stores on steemit and will continue to write more, thus give more opportunities to people that want to earn and help out.

Some things I am looking for

  • Voice must be dark, with emotion
  • Must understand this is a dystopian setting
  • Able to make the listener be part of the story
  • Above 55 Rep just means you know how to get around here and you are somewhat active.


If you have not yet read some of my stories please have a look below.

Posted from my blog with SteemPress :


great stuff


Can I pay in Steem? I'll almost all out of SBD. And I have quite a couple of posts to send...

And if yes, how much do I pay in Steem per post as against paying with SBD? Thanks!


Now, I want to post like 4 or 5 before the deadline. And since Steem has more currency value than SBD, how much of Steem do I pay for an SBD? Thanks!

Awesome thank you.

Make sure to send in your entry fee.

I have sent the entry fee for the first post, of 1 SBD. Should I send more posts, I guess I'll be paying in Steem instead of SBD, since I've almost ran out of same...

What a looking the cloud

@ chronocrypto
I got you. well I watch and appear as though that it's offer. Doing this little extend with me and acquire a few.

This is the place things begin to separate. In the event that Steemit doesn't get cash through promotions or associate advertising, at that point where
imageshelo.jpgdo they get it from?

All things considered, the straightforward answer is, it's most certainly not. Steemit has no income stream, so keeping in mind the end goal to remunerate their clients,

I'm new in steemit please guide me how to grow in steemit

Buena iniciativa!!

Would be nice if you could credit the artists whoms pictures you used. Don't think you would like to have your content spread without credit? ;)

Nice blog how u get this. Idea tell me ,,u r grat guy i m a big fan of you. How much time u take to read a blog tell me degibetly ,,u r a great person keep it up ,,i m very gratful to u if u r upvote and comment on my all blog ,,again u have such a lot of great ideas

Good job mate it will encourage the true blogger.

Hey! That is a great post/artwork, you have earned an upvote from me ! Did you know about the latest addition to the steem blockchain ? It’s called Artisteem and as you may have guess from the name it is focus around art, you should really check it out ! (http://www.artisteem.com/)

I dont have flair for fiction writting
But this is a good opportunity for creative minds to be rewarded and noticed. All the best, to the participants.

is that possible in Flash Dystopian Fiction 500

Good content

Very good content!

I can write only in hungarian language. Can you read that? :)

Seems to me you can write in English.

My english come from movies (with hungarian subtitles), games, internet, etc. Its mean, i newer learned grammar in school.
Its enough for a basic-level chat, or a pub-life in a foreign country, but for literature, no way :D

Fantastic work with this one, kudos

Hey, I got a question... Is it a maximum of 500 words or a minimum of 500 words?

Also, are things like "Don't" counted as 1 word or as 2 words?

Much thanks for hosting these, I like writing so I guess I'm coming back on steemit & try writing some stories again;)

Don't is one word...

500 is both the min and max.

Ah, so it has to be exactly 500 words? That's interesting ;)

Thanks for your response!

I see you never got answered by the man itself... IDK, lots of comments but no answer from the creator plus wanting users to pay 1SBD upfront sounds fishy, any ideas?

Thanks for pointing that out, Yes I have a life outside of steemit.

fishy? take a look at my past contests, or ask any questions.

Okay, cool, relax, though I understand you being a tad angry with all the soulless bot-like comments to this post.
I actually take a look at past contests, but I couldn't find any, I don't think you can reach 69 rep being fishy, but it never hurts to be careful, I'm sure you understand where I'm coming from.
As for questions, I only have two questions:
1- What do you mean by flash dystopia?, I know what is a dystopian setting for a history, but I've never heard the term flash dystopia, when you say flash you refer to the length of the history itself, the fact that is 500 words long?
2- I'm not an artist, and while I've always been heavily inspired by games like ShadowRun or Cyberpunk I've never been capable of drawing for the life of me, even so, I MIGHT find a free image that MIGHT suit the post, does a image count for the length, and can I post without any image?

Also, if you want help proofreading some entries, I can help you, no fee required, I enjoy reading dystopian setting histories. That's all.

Sure you can post with out an image.


Flash meaning a quick write up of a Dystopian setting story. Sorta like a pop quiz.

Hello, I got an inquiry... Is it a greatest of 500 words or at least 500 words?

Likewise, are things like "Don't" considered 1 word or as 2 words?

Much a debt of gratitude is in order for facilitating these, I like composition so I figure I'm returning on steemit and have a go at keeping in touch with a few stories once more;)

Wtf is this... Are you a bot that copies other people's comments and replaces certain words with synonyms for them?

Please refer/link/credit the original art to the original artists

I know their work and to see it not credited is a little uncool.

Is 500 words the minimum or maximum amount?

So exactly 500 words then? Challenging...

Sounds interesting, I'd like to try it if I get time.

I wonder about the same...

What type of voice talent do you want and which language.

All your questions are answered in the post...

So... I managed to write exactly 500 words, still no title, the setting is a mix-up between Deus Ex, CyberPunk and the Matrix

Please answer the second point I asked, the image part... depending on the answer I can post it already or I would need to edit it more.


Link in case you don't notice the transfer link in the memo.

excellent the most, this type of contests, at this moment I am participating in one, it will be a pleasure to participate in this, that I live fiction writing. everything goes well and your contest thrives
