What’s it all about?

Inspired by the Ministry’s successful story-making workshops, The Story Engine is an online writing space where young people can write, edit and publish stories.

It offers young people inspiration and support to develop and write their own stories – creating, for example, their own characters, settings, dialogue and plot – and the opportunity to share these with others; in their class, school and within the wider Story Engine community.

What’s in the box?

The Story Engine is fun and interactive, it provides a safe and inspiring place for young people to write, and a place for teachers to set tasks, guide writers and reward work.

Magic Paper
