Resources for Young Writers

A teen writer e-mailed me after she read my post about the EPIC New Voices writing contest for middle school and high school students.

She asked about resources for young writers. So I’ve been on the lookout but only recently came up with some good ones.

Georganna Hancock at A Writer’s Edge introduced me to Writing magazine from Weekly Reader, a favorite school days memory for many of us. Students can submit their writing to the Word: the Official Blog of Read and Writing Magazines, which also offers writing advice.

A recent post on Becoming a Writer Seriously suggested Fictional Worlds as a blog that is inspiring and informative for young writers. Posts include writing advice, experiences, and sample work.

I’d like to offer more resources for teen writers. Please share any Web sites, blogs, or other resources to motivate and educate aspiring young writers. Thank you!
