Outline
 
New and existing authors of any age, including children, are welcome to submit their short Children's Stories here for publication. You can also include pictures to illustrate your story.
 
Our new author Pop Johnson wants to share the news: "I have won two awards for stories I submitted to the Tennessee Mountain Writers Contest. I was very pleased and surprised to receive second place in the 2014 Joy Margrave Non-Fiction Award for my memoir, 'Living in the Shadow of the Nuclear Warhead', about growing up in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Then, I was called up again for 'The Bears' Picnic', second place in Children's Literature Category. Pretty exciting for a novice writer. I only had the confidence to enter because you were kind enough to publish my first-ever stories The Queen's Cat and The Bear's Picnic recently.
 
Our Free stories are aimed at helping children:
  • By stimulating children's imagination their creative abilities develop.
  • The carefully selected use of words and language develops understanding.
  • Fun short stories fit within a childs initial attention span and stimulates the desire for more.
  • Gradualy increasing story length develops children's attention span.
  • Enjoyment of stories stimulates the desire in children to read for themselves.
 
We change our free children's story selections from our library frequently and email our 1000's of readers about new stories.
 
We provide unlimited access to our entire library for a small fee to help cover costs.
 
We also publish selections of stories from time to time in eBooks for most eReaders including Kindle, iPad, iPhone, Android devices, laptops, PC's and in print. Some versions may include narration (audio track). Some may require a small download or print on demand fee through the supplier to cover costs. For example Amazon's current (Mar 2013) smallest download fee is £0.77p ($1.20 US).
 
Promoting Authors
 
We promote the good work of Children's Authors who help and encourage children to enjoy reading. We publish the Authors name or Pen Name with the authors story and may also, at our option include an introduction to the author or Special Promotion, for example please see Elliots Amazing Adventures button top left (part of this collection will soon be available on Kindle).
 
We promote authors to readers worlwide, a readership currently growing at 400% (year to September 2013).

We make Free Children's stories available to all to help parents and others encourage children to enjoy traditional reading, promote good authors and Childrens Stories Net as a source of Children's Stories.
 
All stories are checked for suitability before they are published and are proof read and corrected as neccessary (small fee may apply). Unsuitable stories may not be published entirely at our option.
 
Website visitors are encouraged to "freely print a single paper copy of the entire story page for their own domestic private use, individual qualified Teachers may also similarly freely print additional paper copies for teaching purposes within their own educational establishment".
 
Free Help For Authors
 
We accept stories in Plain Text and other well known formats (eg: MS Word and OpenOffice), so no need for expensive or complicated software, short stories can be pasted into this page, see 'Submit Your Story Here' further down.
 
We prefer not to receive stories on paper by post, extra time is needed to type these in. If there are special circumstances (eg: computer breakdown) then please contact us before sending by post.

As a writer you may know of 'Microsoft Word' the most common word processor, subject to version, this can cost between 80 and 400 ($120 to $600 US), in some cases Microsoft requires a yearly renewal fee, in short prohibitively expensive for some.
 
The Good News you can have a very good equivalent 'OpenOffice' absolutely free and above board (sponsored by: The Apache Software Foundation). Open Office works in an almost identical way to Microsoft Word, thus existing skills transfer easily. More good news is OpenOffice can work with existing Microsoft Word files (most versions) so no compatability problems.

Help With Illustrations
 
True Shih Tzu Stories - Lucy's Adventures - By Lucy Sitzu (tm) You will see from our story selections currently available that some are illustrated and some are not.
 
Illustrations are not compulsory, some stories are fine without, others benefit from illustrations.
 
Not every one can produce illustrations, there's numerous sources of Free Clip Art which can be found through Google search.
 
Photographs can also provide a good means of illustration, the example cover for 'True Shih Tzu Stories - Lucy's Adventures - by Lucy Sitzu™', the photograph does the job very well.
 
We have our own in house graphics facilities which may be able to help you. For example the titles on the "Lucy's Adventures" cover were added to an original photo.
 
You can request help with graphics and illustrations on the submission form below, please bear in mind we may not be able to provide what everyone would like.
