to the "table cards" project


  • If chosen, your story would be read aloud in an "table cards" episode and published to both TikTok and Instagram Reels by my channel, @arynlei. It will accompany a playing card design based on your story.

  • Before designing a card or beginning video production, I will email you to double check details and get any visual references or photos you may have that could enhance your story or aid my design.

  • Regardless of whether your story is chosen for a card, anything you submit in this form will remain confidential until I gain your explicit consent to share.

  • If your story is chosen you will receive a complimentary digital download of the card your story inspires.


  • The theme of this deck is the table, therefor your story should be centered around an activity or meal that takes place at the table. This can include non-table surfaces like a car center console or picnic blanket, but should focus on non-digital interactions and shared experiences.

  • Please write your story outside of the form so you can check it for spelling and grammar, and so you can do a word count. 

  • Stories should be between 100 and 300 words. 

  • If your story includes any difficult-to-pronounce words or names, especially non-english words, please include a note on pronunciation in parentheses.

  • If you want to remain anonymous, please leave the name and handles fields blank and change any names and/or identifying details in your story.

  • If you have any questions or comments, let me know in the Notes section :)


Thanks so much for submitting your story!
