Kelly's tales proving popular
Wednesday, 2nd June, 2010
Local aspiring children's book author Kellie Coff is now one of the top five short story authors on the popular website "Smories".
Smories holds three competitions over three months and each month a winner is announced.
Last month, Kellie Coff finished in the top from more than 1000 entrants.
Mrs Coff said the website is somewhere kids can safely visit and hear other children read the stories.
"The website is screened by a mum and dad, so it's completely safe," she said.
"The website also doesn't edit out kids' stumbling or making a mistake to make kids aware that it's okay to make mistakes, and it really boosts their confidence."
The people who submit their stories to the webpage also still hold onto the rights, so they still own their work if they want to approach a publisher.
Mrs Coff has links to her video stories on her website, along with information about herself and her work.
