More Student Writing and Art Publishing and Contest Opportunities

From Fatima, a student online:
There are some more places where teens’ and kids’ writings can get published that I think aren’t on this site which I thought would be interesting and fun.
1. Magic Dragon: This is a magazine which accepts writing and art

2. KidPub: This publishes your own book and sells copies of it on Amazon

3. The Claremont Review: Annual contest for poetry and fiction

4. Doodle 4 Google: contest to reinvent Google’s homepage logo. This accepts K-12 students’ art work

Excellent suggestions, Fatima! Thank you! I didn’t know about any of these and I appreciate them very much. I will add them to my list.

Note that #2 costs money for publication of a book. Remember that “real” publishers NEVER ask writers for money to publish anything. However, if you would like a book of yours published for a fee, you are welcome to do this.

#3, The Claremont Review, is a contest that charges money as an entry fee to raise funds in order to hold the contest.

#4 has some fabulous prizes for student artists! Take a look at the site, because there are some amazing designs of the Google logo.

Thanks again for amazing opportunities for creativity! If anyone else finds more, send them in. And for other ideas, see the list at right.

    You might also want to check out the free classbook and individual storybook production (we call “publishing”) offered to elementary and middle school classrooms at

    There is a contest that accepts art on the theme of “free2create.” The deadline is on Saturday, August 1.

  3. Fatima Says:

    During the summer, I am going to write entries for some contests. But I have a really hard time thinking about what to write about. What should I do to get ideas of what to write about?

    Thanks for mentioning KidPub! I wanted to let you know that, in addition to our publishing program, we also run monthly writing contests, and a weekly drawing for a free book from the KidPub bookstore. KidPub has been around since 1995 and we love getting kids excited about writing!
