Smories is an innovation new online project to promote children’s stories. It’s a free website where kids can watch shorts videos of kids reading stories.
It is also a place for unpublished children’s story writers worldwide to get their work published free online, while retaining all rights. The stories will be text only (not illustrated), which will remove a common obstacle to publication for many aspiring writers.
In order to attract great stories, Smories has created a $1,500 prize for the best story submitted each month. From the submissions, 50 stories will be chosen to be narrated by kids and filmed, and the video story which attracts the most traffic on the site will win the prize.
Entries are accepted from anywhere in the world. Submission is free. The current competition closes March 31, 2010.
