This is a different sort of post today. I recently launched a new website for children and young adults called ‘Celebrating Stories‘.
The idea behind the site is fairly simple. I thought about the fact that a lot of us (adults) are using creative outlets to deal with the odd mix of alert, isolation, and simple stir-craziness that we’re all going through at the moment.
I thought it might be nice if children and young adults had access to a venue where they could share their own stories (fiction/ non-fiction/ jokes/ poetry/ any other forms of expression).
‘Celebrating Stories’ is a place for children and young adults to be creative and share their own take on the world with others. They’ll also be able to comment on each others’ stories, offer encouragement, chat about their stories, and tell them about their own.
How do kids get their story on ‘Celebrating Stories’?
Each writer will have to become a member of Celebrating Stories. This is a free process and doesn’t take a lot of time.
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.
Login details will then be sent out and they’ll be writing stories in no time.
I hope this resource helps children to engage with each other and be creative. It can’t hurt for them to have an outlet during these strange times as well.
Thanks for reading,
All the best, John
