We encourage everyone to send us their stories
including parents, writers, and of course children. If you are under 13 you must have your
parent's (or legal guardian's) permission. That means we need them to tell us
that it is O.K. for you to send your story in.
You will need to give us an e-mail address where
we can contact you (and your parent or legal guardian). It must be a working e-mail
address. We will e-mail you to tell you if your story is going to be put on the site
and to make sure that you (and your parent or guardian) agree to have it up. If
you don't have an e-mail address please send your story and your phone number by regular
mail. Your parent or guardian will need to write us a note saying: "It
is O.K. to publish my son or daughter's story on the Goodnight Stories
website". They will also need to clearly print their name and sign it.
This is for your protection.
You will need to let us know if you want your name
and age next to your story on the site. Even if you DO NOT want your name on the

paper, OR SMALLER. If you have your pictures as a GIF or JPEG (your parents can help
you with this) you can send it as an attachment in your e-mail. If you have them up
on the Internet already, you can send us the website address and we can get them from
Please note that by sending us your
stories by e-mail, FAX, or regular mail you are giving us unconditional permission to
publish your story on the Internet and to use it in any future Goodnight Stories
newsletter or publication. Please make sure you do
not send us any copyrighted material (someone else's stories or writing) this
is ILLEGAL and could get you in trouble.
It is our choice which stories we put on the
site. Not every story that is sent to us will be put up, even though we try our best
to use everyone's stories.
