Recently, my 7th grade AR history students have been keeping 'Civil War' Journals. They created their own character and respond to a prompt each day when they come in. I have one student who has gone above and beyond anything I could ever have expected. I have never been so proud of one student and have gone over half the school bragging on him and showing off his journal to other teachers. I would like to try to find either a writing contest or publication that accepts young writer's works for him. This is a student who is usually just a 'goof off' but I seemed to have really found his niche and would like to encourage it. Does anyone know where I can find such things to encourage the literary efforts of a fledgling 13 year old writer?
