Storybird starts with images first to inspire your story. Here’s how it works:
Step One: Browse artwork and get inspired. Choose an illustrator, or search for a portfolio of images using keywords. Click on lightning bolt located in the bottom right corner of the picture you choose to begin your story.
Step Two: Choose a format.
- Picture books (more art, less text)
- Longform (chapters, less art)
- Poetry (one image, select words)
Step Three: Tell your story. Drag and drop images onto your picture book as you write. Use the Insert button to illustrate long-form chapters. Refresh word sets and art to create visual poetry
Step Four: Publish, share and print. Publish your work to Storybird’s public library or keep private. Share on your social networks, via email, or embed elsewhere. Order gorgeous printed books and poems as keepsakes and gifts.
