I can see that you have established quite a network to feed information as well as share. Do you have information about writing contests and/reading contests and competitions for students? I would also be interested in locating places where student writing can be published outside of the school setting.
Actually, my partner teacher Kristy Mall, has our students participate in a poetry contest at the beginning of each school year. The name of the contest is Creative Communications Poetry Contest, here is the URL for the site, http://www.poeticpower.com/. It is completely free and poems chosen will be published in their annual anthology. Good luck and happy writing.
