For Storybook Writers
Use the ready-made static templates or design your own from our library of original art and backgrounds. We offer storybook writers, as well as classrooms, homeschoolers or individuals who want to write a story or series of stories. By using these templates you can start creating your book today with rescue writing.
We have asked journalists, authors, celebrities and other great people to help you along the way. We are all storytellers, and now you can discover that about yourself too. To create and upload a story to our site for everyone to read.
Here’s a Step-by-Step process on how to work with Rescue Writing to create your own story page your first step to becoming a published author.
Take a short tour of the website. For this site, we provide learning videos on storytelling and writing as well as sample templates. This is fun and easy.
Decide what you want to write about – your cat, your dog, turtle or a mythical dragon. Make some notes and brainstorm some ideas and then, select the template you want. There are dog templates for dogs, cat templates for cats, several retiles, fish and imaginary pets from which to choose.
It is usually easier to write a story from a photograph rather than try to get a picture to match your story. Look for a few really fun photos of your pet (or story topic) and imagine what the pet is doing or thinking. There are many sample stories on the website that will get your imagination brewing. The best part, is since we don’t know what our pet is thinking, we are always right. You may find several photos and have different ideas.
