About Us

What We Do

Kids Tales is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) that teaches kids who don’t have writing opportunities outside of school how to create, compose, and publish their own short story. During a Kids Tales workshop, 8- to 12-year-old kids spend one week brainstorming, writing, and editing their very own short story. At the end of the week, the stories are assembled in a collection and published as an anthology on Amazon.com. Each student writer receives a copy of the book, as well as his or her very own journal and pencils. Kids Tales has been recognized by the International Literacy Association’s global 30 under 30 list, the National Writing Project, Ashoka’s Youth Venture, AFS-USA, Youth Service America, the Prudential Spirit of Community Award, and Three Dot Dash.
