Anthology Submissions

Open Anthologies - taking submissions



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

The original anthology in the Kids' Chronicles series of anothologies, "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.


Deadline for submissions: November 1st, 2016

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. 

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

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

The original anthology, "The Talisman Chronicles: A Collection of Stories Written and Illustrated by Children," is an anthology of stories written and illustrated by children. It has been requested by some kids that we create another anthology and the topic requested is superheroes.

This is the new topic for children to write about for a new anthology in 2014. 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. Stories should be written as if they are a scene in their superhero's movie and should tell us something important about the superhero. Superheroes should be BRAND-NEW. No using superheroes that have already been created by someone else or telling a story that you have seen at the movies or read in comics. This superhero should be entirely the child's creation.


Medals and certificates will be sent to each child who has a story in the anthology.

Before writing the story, these details about the superhero must be filled in:

Superhero name:

Name of human alter ego, if different:

Superhero Appearance (hair, eyes, body type, etc.):

Human alter ego appearance (if he/she has an alter ego):

Personality:

Brief description of how the superhero gets his/her powers (i.e. born with them, radioactive accident, mad scientist experiments on her, etc.):

Anything else important:
