Jazzy's Journal - Fan Fiction by Young Authors.
To celebrate writing and storytelling, I've decided to launch a Jazzy's Journal project. A while back, Flat Stanley was the rage. The idea was simple but so wonderful. Copying that idea, here is what Jazzy's Journal is all about. (I know, Flat Jazzy would be better, but I don't want any copyright issues.)
Cut out the Jazzy picture. (There are several sizes and poses to choose from. Use just one or all of them for different angles in your illustrations.)
Put the cutout of Jazzy in a picture, either one you draw, or take a picture of her with your phone or your caregiver's phone. Please do not use copyrighted images, only use your own.
Write a short story. It can be as long as you want it to be but here are some guidelines. All stories with illustrations or photos will be accepted. (If the photo includes pictures of people, you will need to sign a release form.)
In kindergarten and younger: one or two sentences on 1/2 page.
First grade: write at least two to four sentences on a full page.
Second grade: fill two pages and write at least two paragraphs.
Third grade: fill three pages and write at least four paragraphs.
Higher grades can do it too. Entries should be at grade level
Email me, firstname.lastname@example.org with the completed story and picture. Please include the author's first name, last initial, and grade level. Last names will not be printed in the book but will be included in the ISBN contributor list.
When I collect 26 pages of stories, I will publish the collection on Amazon. Yes, you will be a published author in a Jazzy's Journal anthology. You will be listed as a contributor and your name will be in the table of contents and on your story's title page.
You can print one size Jazzy or have different sizes.
