Now accepting submissions for "The Fairy Tale Chronicles" #FairyTaleChronicles #KidsChronicles

The Fairy Tale Chronicles: A Collection of Stories Written and Illustrated by Children

The original anthology in the Kids' Chronicles series of anthologies, "The Talisman Chronicles: A Collection of Stories Written and Illustrated by Children," is an anthology of stories written and illustrated by children. A second one, after several requests, was opened for submission, and in 2015, "Superhero Chronicles: A Collection of Superhero Stories Written & Illustrated by Children" was published. It has been requested by some kids that we create another anthology, and so we are complying with this request.

The third volume of the Kids' Chronicles series of anthologies published by Your Kids' Creations is called "The Fairy Tale Chronicles: A Collection of Stories Written & Illustrated by Children."

This is the new topic for children to write about for a new anthology in 2016. I think the world needs to read more stories written by children. Don't you?

The anthology will be published in both kindle and print formats, and in both color and black and white formats.

Artwork, when sent in by children should be line drawings. If the drawings are colored-in, when the drawing is optimized for print, the same colors will be used. The cleaner the image, the easier it will be to optimize it for print.

Kids should shoot for 300 words or over for their stories but because these are kids writing, shorter stories will be accepted. The story should be entirely the child's creation, but the child may have help from his or her parent with things like spelling and grammar.

A list of charms is below. Children are to select a charm that best represents their story. I will do my best to send that charm to the child. Once they have written a story for a selected charm, they may select another one and write another story. 

Each child will need to send in a one-line to one-paragraph long author bio, written in the third person and will need to e-mail a copy of the signed parental agreement.

Deadline for submissions is January 15th, 2017.

List of charms below:

Cat charm 
Dragon charm 
Mermaid charm 
Wolf charm 
Book charm 
Unicorn charm 
Heart charm 
Fox charm 
Fairy charm 
Butterfly charm 
Dragonfly charm 
Anchor charm 
Skull and crossbones charm 
Feather charm 

Charms will be crossed out when no more of a specific type are available and new ones will be added as charms are taken for stories.
