Today marks the first year of Students Publish Here!
I thank the readers and contributors for making this a successful first year. One young student, whose work is published here, asked about the students and was surprised to learn that they range in age from 6 to 70. That's as it should be! Writing is a craft we refine throughout our lives.
The success of this blog depends largely on readers telling others about it. Do you know a young person who has written a good poem, essay or short story? Why not tell them about Students Publish Here? I'm always looking for new writings, especially from students who have never had anything published before. Seeing your work in print for the first time can be transformative. It grabs you and shakes you into awareness of the power of words. For most people that first publication leads to a second, and a third. It can bring focus to peoples' lives, be they young or old. So spread the word about Students Publish Here!
Again I thank you, dear readers and writers.
