Since January of 2022, I’ve been working as a freelance script writer for The Slumber Group. I currently have over 20 stories that are in various stages of production. Some of them air on the Get Sleepy free podcast, whereas others are only available to premium Get Sleepy subscribers or people who have the Slumber app.
What Kind of Story is This?
Similar to a meditation or soothing music, it’s a bedtime story that is custom made to lull you to sleep. The idea is to immerse you in relaxation and help you turn your brain off so that you can rest. There are many different types of sleepy stories for grownups, ranging from travel visualizations to fairytales. In every case, extra care is taken to steer clear of any story element that might keep you awake. These stories are all read by professional voiceover actors.
