New Children's Author Pop Johnson 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 Childrens-Stories.Net were kind enough to publish my first-ever stories The Queen's Cat and The Bear's Picnic.
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 many 10,000's of readers about New Stories and developments from time to time.
We provide unlimited access to our entire library (currently   stories) for a small contribution to help cover our costs.

We may 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.
Preparing Your Story
We accept stories in Plain Text (prefered) and other well known formats (eg: MS Word and OpenOffice), so no need for expensive or complicated software, 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 or disability) 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 many stories 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.
The prefered minimum size for illustrations is 576 pixels (dots) high, bigger is better. Please see the Submission Guide above.
Photographs can also provide a good means of illustration, the example cover for 'True Shih Tzu Stories - Lucy's Adventures - by Lucy Sitzu™', the regular photo 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 the regular 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 due to cost constraints.
