Tales from the Bully Box: short stories on bullying

Tales from the Bully Box is finally here!

BullyBox_FrontCover-3Bullying stinks, but knowing what to do about it can make things better. In Tales from the Bully Box, you will find short stories about kids just like you. They get bullied, and sometimes they even bully. But most of the time, they are bystanders who have to figure out what to do when they witness the bullying all around them. In “Hailey’s Shooting Star,” one-handed Hailey proves her worth on the basketball court and as a friend. In “The Eyes on the Back of My Head,” you’ll get to stare straight into Mike Mansky’s soul with a pair of super-secret laser eyes. Filled with stories that take readers on a journey from the classroom to summer camp and the basketball court to the mall, Tales from the Bully Box inspires kids to be the best friends they can be.

If you want to know more about the authors and what they are doing to help stop bullying, visit them at The Bully Box by clicking here.

I hope you have as much fun reading this anthology as I had helping write and edit it.

Bullying stinks.

Luckily, some people want to make the world a better place for kids–me and my publisher!

The same company that will publish Abigail Bindle and the Slam Book Scam is putting together an anthology (which means a collection of short stories) for readers like you.

If you want to be a writer, you can follow the submission guidelines below (with parent/teacher help) to have your short story considered for the anthology. You can also share this information with anyone you know who wants to be a writer (like a parent, a teacher or a coach).

  • Short stories can be from the point of view of the bully, the bullied or the bystander (the person who watches the bullying happen.)
  • Stories should be under 2,500 words and have a complete story arc (which means a beginning, a middle and an end) that shows how the characters deal with bullying in the right way.
  • Stories must be received by February 15th to be considered for the anthology.
  • Stories should be sent to catwoods.writer@gmail.com with the words “bully anthology” in the subject line.
  • If your story is picked for publication, your parents will need to fill out a form. No payment will be made for your story, but if it gets published, you will receive a free copy of the anthology.
