|Former Children's Laureate, Jacqueline Wilson|
The centre takes its name from the idea that there are only seven basic plots in stories (What happens - see fourth floor of the Story House), and the fact that its home is a renovated Victorian mill with seven levels.
Established authors, such as Michael Rosen and Jacqueline Wilson, support this charity.

Seven Stories celebrates the art of children's books, their place in our childhood and in our culture.
The centre opened on the 19th August 2005, to showcase a national collection of manuscripts and illustrations of some of the UK's finest authors and illustrators for children.
They select original artwork and manuscripts - from first scribbles to finished work - to make their exhibitions, events, and learning programmes.
Exhibitions currently on show are - A Squash and a Squeeze: Sharing Stories with Julia Donaldson and Daydreams and Diaries: the Story of Jacqueline Wilson.
