Stone Soup welcomes reviews by kids of fiction, poetry, and nonfiction books, movies, TV shows, and video games.

Poetry

Submission fee: $

In packets of 3-5. Fewer is okay, too. Any subject, any form.

Art

Submission fee: $

All images should be complete scenes in color, filling the entire page. Know that we do have more opportunity to use images of dogs and cats than images of exotic animals like lions or tigers. We are particularly excited to see landscapes and city scenes, portraits and images with people in them, as well as more abstract images.

Nonfiction - 10000 words max

Max words: 10000

Max pieces: 1

Submission fee: $

Note that we are looking for personal narratives--I.e. vividly told stories about the big and small moments in your life--not, at the moment, for informational or academic essays.
