Working with children to make stories that matter
The Story Makers Press is a publisher focused on encouraging children’s voices and creativity. We aim to publish underrepresented narratives and issues and make sure that every child can see themselves in the books they read.
Our goal is to help children become engaged and compassionate readers prepared to interact imaginatively with the world around them.
We use drama and storytelling with children in order to get them to explore different narratives with us, which we then aim to transform into engaging fiction books.
Intergalactic Superhero School
I was a lonely boy on a distant moon with only his dog Fiver for company. That was until my shocking superpowers attracted the attention of a nearby spaceship and I was whisked away from everything I knew to join the Intergalactic Superhero School!
Chasing the Volcano
A Climate Catastrophe has left Europe under water and Jack's parents under rubble. Jack and his sister have little choice but to leave home and search for the Volcano where their lives might start again.
Some words from our young story makers about their experience:
‘I have learned that you can do anything.’
‘It’s changed how I felt because now I know I can make good ideas if I believe in myself.’
‘You’ve learned me how to be anything.’
‘It makes me feel happy and excited because I don’t really get to be in books what are going to be published.’
‘It makes me feel like I want to write my own story.’
‘You can do anything with inspiration’
Do anything. Be anything.
