About This Web Site
Welcome to my website! I created this because I wanted to share my love for writing with other people and to interact with them. I had the Collaborative Story idea because I wanted people to really take charge of a story. I want all their ideas to be included into this story, so the story is like a patchwork of all the suggestions people have given me. I really hope that this website meets it's expectations, to have kids everywhere get to be creative!!

BOSTON GLOBE, February 14, 2010, Metro West Section, Article by Cindy Cantrell
THE WRITE STUFF: Fifth-grader Genna of Weston has launched a new website to share her love of reading and writing with other kids.
So far, most of the stories and book reviews posted at www.gennasworld.com have been written by Genna with contributions by her 8-year-old sister and a 12-year-old cousin from Connecticut. However, Genna is trying to involve her classmates at the Eliot Montessori School in Natick, and is posting fliers at local libraries and bookstores.
She hopes more participation will stimulate ideas for a collaborative story, in which she elicits suggestions for how a story might proceed as she writes it. All submissions are reviewed for content and age-appropriateness by an adult before being posted online.
“You don’t have to be the best writer in the world to have fun on Genna’s World. My goal for the website is for kids to submit stories, but even kids who don’t like to write can comment on them,’’ said 10-year-old Genna, who might like to be a writer, actress, or singer when she grows up. “It’s just a fun way to be creative and express yourself.’’
Look for GennasWorld featured in the March 2010 issue of "YOUNG WRITER" magazine.
GennasWorld was chosen by the American Library Association as a Great Web Site for Kids.
