Since the advent of technology, artists and other creatives have been looking for ways to adapt to the changes in media. Writers have been the hardest hit by technology’s rise to dominance. Not willing to go down without a fight, more writers are finding ways to adapt and make use of technology as a way to reach out to a new audience. This is the case with Tim LeVan Miller, a writer from South Carolina. Miller has launched a new initiative called Sips Card that seeks to use QR codes as a way to tell stories.
In the age of technology, it seems like everyone has some kind of mobile device. These devices are ideal platforms for reading whilst in public and have even replaced traditional books for a significant number of people. Miller’s goal is to provide these mobile readers with access to quality short stories when they visit their favorite coffee shops. Sips Cards are meant to be found at these shops and each of the cards will have its own QR code. When the code is scanned with a mobile device, people will get to read one of the stories that Miller has approved.
Sips Cards is still in its infancy, thus it is currently calling for submissions. According to the guidelines set up by Miller, submissions should be limited to 3,000 words and authors will have until March 16 to submit their work. There is no fee associated with submission and writers will retain full rights to their work.
