When you create a book or chapter on Storybird, you have the option of making it Public or Private.
"Private" means that only you, and people with whom you share the direct link, can read your story. (Some writers keep their book/chapters private as they draft and edit them, and only choose “Public” once they feel that their work is totally complete.)
Choosing “Public” means that your book or chapter will be submitted to our Moderation Team for review and potential inclusion in the Storybird public library.
The Storybird public library is free to read, and made up of millions of stories written by Storybird users from all around the world. Readers of all ages and from dozens of countries visit it, which is why we carefully moderate all books included in it, to be sure they follow our Community and Content Guidelines. The library can be sorted by different types of stories, different age groups, and different formats.
Need a suggestion of where to start reading in the Storybird public library? Books that are particularly special have been given the “New and Noted” designation by the Storybird staff.
