“Ol’ man river, dat ol’ man river,

He must know sumpin’, but don’t say nothin’

He just keeps rollin’,

He keeps on rollin’ along.”

What types of story can be submitted?

We’re looking for learners to recount their learning journey in their own words. Everyone has a different style and as well as straight forward narrative, we are happy to receive other styles such as poems, fables or stories written for one’s own children.

What types of image can be submitted?

It is nice to have a picture to look at and associate with an author. We are happy to receive photos or other images or meaningful pictures related to a learner’s journey. Please ensure you have copyright on any images sent in. Preferably a .jpeg file, at 300dpi and no more than 200kb in size.

Long stories or short stories?

Anything from about 300 to 1000 words is okay. We don’t think you can tell much of a story with less than 300 words and if everybody submitted 1000 words, we wouldn’t be able to get it all edited!


Please make sure you complete a Permission form so we know your stories and images etc are yours, and that you are happy with us publishing them
