WHAT: These websites and magazines publish children's creative writing. Some even pay up to $35 or offer free copies of their magazines.

BEST PARTS: For kids 13 and under, go to www.stonesoup.com. The bimonthly magazine, Stone Soup, pays $35 for prose and poems, and $30 for book reviews. You can also read children's writing on the site and listen to young authors reading their work.

Kidsnews.com is designed for people under 18 to submit news stories, fiction, poems, and opinion pieces, and to read works by their peers.

Budding poets in Grades 1-12 may enter a poetry contest at www.potatohill.com from now until June 7. First and second prizes are $50. Also at the site, you can submit poetry for the quarterly magazine Potato Hill Poetry, or read the featured student poem of the month.

Students in Grades K-12 can also submit poetry and prose to www.writingconference.com, to be featured in The Writing Slate, a print magazine.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW: Before you send in your writing, make sure you know what the publication wants. Some will send free sample copies; others have writers' guidelines.
