The rise of the conversational interface has cleared the way to transform chatbots into storytellers. It’s time to explore this new storytelling format!

BotStory is a chatbot that connects you with historical writers like Oscar Wilde, who share their own writings, learnings and thoughts with you to serve as inspiration for writing short pieces of a collaborative story.

Join BotStory and become part of a social storytelling game.
