Stories from the Web

Stories from the Web
  • Do you like writing stories or poetry?

  • Want other young people in different countries to read your writing?

  • Do you want to tell other people about your favourite author?

  • Or find out what other young people are reading?


Stories from the Web is a FREE website used by young people from around the world where you can find out about books, authors, illustrators and publishers. You can read extracts of books online and then get involved with the activities on the site.

There are three areas of the site for different age groups. SfW for 0-7s has stories, drawing activities and a gallery. SfW for 7-11s includes games, competitions and much more. At SfW for 11-14s you can get tips on how to become an author in the Writer's Toolkit or join the discussions.

Where else can you get your work displayed and look at other young people's writing?


If you live in Birmingham you can login to the website for free! The writing and drawings you send in appear in the online Gallery and you can join in all the activities and games!

To get your free login pop into any Birmingham library and talk to a member of library staff or email or telephone your local library.

If you want to find out more, you can email the Stories from the Web team at: storiesfromtheweb@birmingham.gov.uk
