Does a contributor need access to WIFI and a smartphone/computer?

Yes, at this time stories are completed through text message or email prompts and video responses, which require internet access and a smartphone or computer with a camera. People invited to contribute to a Quilted project are able to respond to prompts as long as they are able to receive text messages or emails to that device.
