This is a sample story post but it’s also a chance to tell you a little about this website.
‘Celebrating Stories’ is a place for children and young adults to be creative and share their own take on the world. You can contribute fiction, non-fiction, it can be written as a standard ‘story’ format (also known as prose), or you can write poetry, you can share a favourite joke, or you can even use it to share your artwork and tell us about it.
This is your place to be creative and share that creativity with others. You can comment on each others’ stories, offer encouragement, chat about their story, and tell them about your stories. I hope you enjoy it.
What will my story look like once I put it on the site?
Most of the time your stories will look like this post once you publish them. On the front page, your story will be shown with one of your illustrations/ chosen pictures above with your title and a small preview of what you have written underneath.
When people click on that they will see your full story. If you would rather upload a picture of a handwritten story that is fine too but remember that the image will look small on the main page so make sure you add a short description of your story too when you add it to the site.
How do I get my story on ‘Celebrating Stories’?
If you have arrived here and you aren’t a member of Celebrating Stories yet you won’t be able to post any stories. To join simply click this link and join the ‘Celebrating Stories’ mailing list (it’s totally free, there will never be a charge for membership). N.B. Make sure to use the email address of the person who will be using the ‘Celebrating Stories’ membership. Your login details will then be sent to you and you’ll be writing stories in no time.
Don’t forget proper sentences and paragraphs. Write any story you like, and I look forward to seeing what you create,
All the best, John
