FOR KIDS: Storybird Community & Content Guidelines

Last Updated: May 29, 2015 01:03PM EDT
At Storybird, we think that stories help us to be better people. We believe that reading and writing give us the freedom to dream, invent, inspire, ask important questions, share our feelings, and learn about ourselves and others.

It is important that everyone feel safe and welcome on Storybird. To keep all of our users safe, public comments and stories are reviewed after they are submitted. If your story or comment does not follow the rules below, our moderators will ask you to revise it before others can read it. 

We do not allow stories or comments that:
  • contain or request personal information that could make it easy for someone else to find you (including your full name, address/location, school/library, club/group/team or teacher names, phone numbers or email addresses);
  • are based on an idea, story, or characters previously created or owned by someone else (like fanfiction or stories featuring movie/book/comic/video game characters, song lyrics, or poetry);
  • are overly violent or cruel (to humans or animals) or intended to upset or offend readers;
  • are written to bully, put down, or attack other users or groups of people;
  • If your story contains made-up storylines about real people (including classmates, famous/historical figures, or celebrities);
  • are overly pushy in trying to tell others what they should do or believe;
  • contain cursing, hate speech, advertisements, or links to outside websites.

By joining our site, you agree to follow these guidelines so that Storybird can be a welcoming and safe place for everyone. Our company reserves the right to delete any comments or stories that do not comply with our guidelines.

For more information and explanations about specific issues relating to our Guidelines, check the other topics in the Understanding Our Guidelines section of our Help/FAQ.
