Our core values are EMPATHY, SOLIDARITY, PHILANTHROPY, CULTURE and CONNECTION. At StoryPlace, it’s not about the selfie, it’s about the story. By using pen names and promoting anonymity, we want to take the ego out of the story and remind people that everyone has a story to tell, and every story has a lesson to teach.
We’ve created a platform for sharing true stories in a simplified written format of 1,000 words or less. The design is very user friendly and meant to NOT intimidate NON-writers. All stories are filtered by topics (eg. love, foodies, health, etc.) and are pinned to the location of where the story took place. As the user, you can search for stories about a specific topic or in a specific location. With our interactive map of geo-located stories, we aim to create STORY CULTURE, a new approach to tourism based on local peoples stories.
At StoryPlace we want to spread empathy, one story at a time.
