Publish It On The Net

Barbara J. Feldman

The excitement of seeing your stories posted on the Internet can not be matched! Many families and young people are creating their own home pages — a collection of photos, pictures, stories and pointers to favorite family Web sites. But you don’t need to create an entire home page to be published on the Internet. You can submit your children’s work to many existing sites. I recommend these sites which accept stories from kids who yearn to be published. [Editor’s Note: An updated version of this topic can be found here: Become a Published Author]

  • Kid News stars

    KidNews is a news service for students and teachers around the world. Anyone may use stories from the service, and anyone may submit stories. Use their online submission form to send in material such as news stories, feature stories, reviews, sports, poetry or fiction.

  • Kids' Space -- Story Book5 stars

    "Kids' Space", available in either English or Japanese, has four arenas for publishing kid's works. My favorites are "Story Book" and "Bean Stalk". "Story Book" accepts both original stories and stories based on their monthly material. My son enjoyed creating a pictograph story, where each special word is replaced by a colorful picture. "Bean Stalk" is fun because you can illustrate someone else's story, or be the author of a story for someone else's picture.

  • Midlink Magazine- The Write Spot4 stars

    The Write Spot is a section within Midlink, the electronic magazine by and for middle grade students. Submitted stories are selected for publication on the basis of originality and composition.

  • Honorable Mentions

    The following links are either new discoveries or sites that didn't make it into my newspaper column because of space constraints. Enjoy!
