1. Stone Soup
Founded in 1973, Stone Soup is one of very few print magazines that publish work by writers and artists ages 8 to 13. Visit stonesoup.com to view a sample issue and then encourage your kiddo to send in a submission. $37 For a one-year subscription.
Kids pick a story start and take chapter two wherever they like! Other BoomWriters write their own version, and then kids vote on which will become the second chapter (and so on). Finished books are available for purchase. $40 For a one-year subscription.
Children choose a set of whimsical illustrations and write a story or poem to go alongside. The site’s a cinch to use, and kids can collaborate on stories and read and comment on others’ work. Strict moderation keeps it positive and safe. Free for a regular membership.
