Nearly all children who hear and read a lot of poetry will naturally try writing poetry, too. A few children will even love writing poetry enough to want to try share their work in some public venue. Here are a variety of print and online sources that include writing by children and teens. One note: be sure to guide young writers through the submission process and prepare them for possible rejection. Be encouraging and have fun with poetry!
