Welcome! Founded in 1973, Stone Soup is the leading publication for writing and art by students under the age of fourteen. In addition to our international magazine where young writers and artists can get published, available in print or here at our website, we publish books, reviews and blog posts by young writers. This page focuses on the additional resources that we offer. Explore our website (look under the Resources dropdown and visit the Blog) to find activities, writing prompts, our weekly Newsletters, Stone Soup author interviews, music by young composers, and much more.
Our growing repository of reading suggestions and writing and art activities is an invaluable resource for families, educators, and anyone wondering how to occupy their time positively during this current global pandemic. Stone Soup is here to support you, and we are posting a new writing or art prompt every day during the crisis, available free to all. Please contact us if you’d like to blog for us and publish suggestions of your own for how to use Stone Soup with students, to engage them as readers and encourage them as writers. We’d love to hear from you and share your expertise with our community.
Stone Soup provides a strong element and vital support for the creative writing side of any literacy and language arts program, by providing model examples of the kind of work kids’ peers have produced and had selected for publication in a magazine and website that is read all over the world.
