New experiences for your books

Story Machine Productions produce and present shows and digital products that bring books alive. We offer authors, publishers, prizes, and exam boards a unique, creative, and professional promotion opportunity for your books, helping them stand out in a crowded market-place and driving engagement and sales. We create imaginative, exciting experiences for audiences.

Publishers

A unique and bespoke promotional opportunity to help your books stand out.

Authors

Reach new readers without spending all hours of the day on self-promotion.

Festivals

Ready-made and fully curated experiences designed for your audiences.

Imagine diving headfirst into a story. Imagine events where dancers, actors, musicians, artists, filmmakers, and writers collaborate to share an experience every bit as immersive as reading the book itself.

Imagine venues vibrating with the sounds, textures, tastes, and faces of a story. Where words create experience, and empathy is the currency that matters. Imagine stepping into that world, then rushing off to buy the buy book, so that you keep it alive in your head, and heart, and body.

Imagine a world where writers have more time to write. Where authors aren’t chained to promotion, and those who can’t do events still reach readers.

Imagine a bespoke show, curated with love, growing from the heartbeats between the lines of each unique book. Imagine a promotional tool that can tour as widely and reach as many readers as possible.

Imagine better. Imagine Story Machine Productions.
