StoryMapsStoryMaps is a free story planning and writing application for children that works on Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X or Linux. I created StoryMaps for my PhD, and worked with teachers, children, creative writing experts and an illustrator to design and evaluate itStoryMaps breaks down the elements of traditional fairy tales into building blocks which children can use to invent new stories. With StoryMaps children can create stories that contain their own original ideas while being structurally complete and well-formed. I hope that StoryMaps will give children a powerful mental model for understanding stories and their construction. School trials of StoryMaps found that through using the application children were able to grasp abstract narrative concepts and apply them to their own writing, and that the experience improved the narrative structure of children's stories.

StoryMaps is a free to try software. You can free download and try it for an evaluation period.
