As WITS well knows, there are plenty of awesome student writers. But how do you know which magazines and journals will publish the essays, stories, and poems of young writers? Here are a few ideas:

  • Launch Pad Magazine publishes stories, art, and poetry by young people aged 6-14.
  • For students aged 13-18 definitely check out the Young Writers Magazine.
  • New Pages has a special section that is a guide for high school age authors. They update it too, so you can bookmark the page and revisit it regularly.
