Become a Launch Pad Writer!

Illustration by Catie, age 8 for “Colors,” by Pasha, age 11.

Launch Pad is not accepting submissions right now. The editors hope to have more time to dedicate to accepting more in the future, but for now, please enjoy the stories, poems, and artwork already published.

Launch Pad publishes fiction, nonfiction, and poetry by kids and teens ages 6 through 14. We choose stories and poems that are creative and well-written. We do not publish all submissions. Read some of our stories and poems to get an idea of the works we like to publish. We also have Writing Tips to help you out.

    Sounds cool.
    Though I am only 11 years old I have written about 30 books about 25 of them one page for my grand parents, but I have one called The Shy Pitbull Pup, also one that I haven’t even named yet that I am working on. Though, I am trying to find tips on inspiration so I can continue it. I’m sure it’s coming out well.
