Short Stories

Illustration by Katie Squires

We are passionate at STORGY Kids to provide children a safe space to enjoy reading, writing and finding short stories that will be entertaining, engaging and help to inspire young minds. We will be publishing short stories from published authors whilst also publishing short fiction by children for children.


We will also look to be adding videos of children reading short stories, whilst also allowing space for Lex or resident dragon and others who have a passion for reading to take part in the process – with the possibility of video submissions from all over the world.

So if you are a young person with a passion for telling stories please do send us your words.

If you are a published author and would like to send us a short story you have knocking about we would also love to hear from you too, and so would your legions of fans we presume. We hope that this site will become the go to resource for Children’s fiction and having exclusive content will help us achieve this goal.
