MAGS AND EZINES THAT PUBLISH YOUNG WRITERS' WORK

YOUNG WRITERS CAN GET PUBLISHED

When I speak in elementary, middle, and secondary schools, teachers and students often ask me if there are magazines and ezines that publish young writers' work. Yes, there are. Here are some recommendations for your talented writers, at home or in your classroom.

The most highly regarded literary magazine for kids in Canada is, of course, The Claremont Review, run by real editors especially for kids: http://www.theclaremontreview.ca/.


Here are some other links to publications for young writers:
