National Storytelling Week is celebrated by people of all ages and from all walks of life because the Society for Storytelling believe that everyone has a story to tell. This belief is shared by all of us here at Sweet Cherry, and this year we have decided to give all of you storytellers a chance to get your work published! Our editorial team are eagerly awaiting works of original fiction for children and teenagers. They’re looking for something fresh and exciting to share with the world. For those of you who participated in NaNoWriMo in November and are now ready to share your story with us or those of you who have been working on something special for a while, this is the time to share it.

 Submissions will be open for a month, from the 27th of January to the 28th of February, and you can send them to You can find guidelines on how to submit here.
