Gatwick Airport To Giveaway eBook Via SoundCloud

London’s Gatwick airport has partnered with the social music network SoundCloud to allow passengers to access audiobooks while visiting the airport. So far, the partnership has included giving away free audiobooks of classic children’s book such as Goldilocks, The Ugly Duckling and Sleeping Beauty.
The airport would like to expand its content and is therefore running a contest for children’s book writers to submit stories to be featured on the channel. The airport will record a new story every week throughout the summer until the end of the summer.

The airport explains what they are looking for on their Tumblr page: “We won’t be able to record a full novel, so the length should be anywhere from five minutes to half an hour reading time. If you are in the process of writing a book, and only want to provide us an extract that is fine, so long as it has a fairly self contained narrative.”
