One of my goals this year as a teacher is to get my students’ work recognized and (fingers crossed!) published. It is wonderful for students to share their work within the classroom, or within the school, or to their parents – but the experience of getting their work read by the community, country, or world is invaluable.
Through some research, I was able to find some websites accepting children’s writing and/or illustrations. My students are in middle school, so I left off most of the sites geared towards high school students, but I did include some which accept work from 13 – 19 year-olds.
I was astounded by the number of publication opportunities available and encourage every teacher and student to look into these sites and set some goals. You CAN be published!
