Every so often I'm asked -- where can a teen who loves to write post their stories and poems? (which is a different question from "where can a teen writer get published -- in a magazine or book?")
The Kidlithosphere has gathered a list of these online sites which are safe places for writing teens to show off their work:
(I'll add more links as I find them.)
Teen Ink -- a print and online literary magazine
Writer and speaker, Anastasia Suen, has a page on her website with millions of links for students.
Write On, a blog for Teen Writers and Readers. (It looks like a WordPress webpage and offers to give critiques)
Author, Dee Scribe, has a section on her website all about being a writer.
The Hay Fever blog has writing tips for teens. It took me a while to figure out what this is, but it seems to be a part of something called The Hay Festival over in the United Kingdom.
FIGMENT seems to be a place to upload your writing to share.
TeachingAuthors blog also has a page of links to sites for young writers.
