There are many ways in which a story can be told. Through texts and images, with the help of theater and the arts, and then there is the roman way, and more particularly the historical roman way. Faced with a story that is based on facts, where the events and people are non-fictitious, it can be difficult to determine how far the historical reality arrives before the imagination of the author intervenes. In displaying your stories in this section, Evus wants to ensure that the reader is able to distinguish between reliable information correctly documented, and that which is fictitious. Thus, each story published in this section of the portal will contain one or more notes about the historical reliability of the piece. Anyone interested in publishing a story on Evus (maximum 4,500 characters) must remember to mention related documents, bibliographical sources and historical reference. The submissions will be evaluated and examined carefully by the editorial staff of Evus before being published (and will not be returned even if unpublished). Please note that those who send narrative material to “The Storyteller “ (firstname.lastname@example.org) does so as a volunteer without receiving any payment.
