The Stone Soup Blog

The blog is written by the young writers and artists of Stone Soup. If you are aged 13 or younger and have something to say on any topic—nature, science, cookery, sport, sewing, crafts, music, photography, travel—we would love to hear your voice. We are also always happy to hear from book reviewers. Please go to our Submittable site for more details on how to become a young blogger. We accept individual posts and are also always looking for writers to contribute on a regular basis—once a week or once a month.
