Submit Your Poems

Submit Your Poems Printable(** for Premium Members only)

Seeing your poetry published is exciting for writers of any age. This week’s sites specialize in publishing poems from young poets. They vary in how selective they are, the length of time it will take you to get a response, and the permissions you must grant them. Some of these sites request full copyright ownership, and others just ask for permission to publish your poem on their website. Be sure to ask your parents before you hit submit!

KIdsWWwrite: Submit Your Writing

If you are sixteen or younger you may submit up to four poems per month to the KidsWWwrite. This non-profit online anthology aims to encourage and celebrate children’s writing and reading. They publish a new edition during the first week of each month, with stories, poems and book reviews grouped into three age ranges: five to eight, nine to twelve, and thirteen to sixteen.

Launch Pad Magazine: Become a Launch Pad Writer

Launch Pad “publishes stories, art, poetry, nonfiction, and book reviews by kids ages 6 – 14.” If your poem is selected, it will be sent to a young artist who will create an accompanying illustration before being published on the site. The result is a beautiful site with exciting work by both young writers and artists. Don’t expect a fast response on your submission, however. In the FAQ section, the editor says that a couple of months delay is pretty common.

PBS Kids: Arthur: Fern's Poetry Book: Write a Poem

“Writing poems can be fun when you juggle all the words and the rhythms together to make them exciting. A poem can be about anything – pets, family, friends, things you like to do… anything at all.” Read some poems, learn about the different kinds of poems (limericks, haiku, and cinquains), and then use the form to submit your own original work. As long as it adheres to “high standards of kid-friendly good taste,” it will be published in Fern’s online Poetry Book.
