In Print!: 40 Cool Publishing Projects for Kidsby Joe Rhatigan
Do you like to write? Now you can combine your words and crafts in fun and imaginative projects to give your creative writing the attention it deserves. Here you'll learn some tips to make your writing better and earn you rave reviews in unexpected places. Print a poem on a T-shirt. Blaze a trail with words carved on stepping stones. Make a scroll book that rolls up inside a candy tin. If you love to write, you're sure to enjoy these imaginative projects.
And if you want to get your writing published the old-fashioned way, check out how to submit it to magazines, newspapers, and newsletters. Do you want your writing to make people think, laugh, or change their minds about something? Then it's time to get your words "out there," and we're going to show you how to do it while having a lot of fun. Sure, you could write your poem or short story on plain sheets of paper, but how about rubber-stamping it on an umbrella instead? Or including it in an awesome book that's held together with nuts and bolts? Seeing your work on handmade gifts, decorations, and other really creative projects will be an exciting experience you won't soon forget. Even if you think you're not artistic, you'll be able to create publishing projects that both read and look great. Let's get started!
Here's something you've probably never thought about before: putting all your talents on display with a calendar. Make up seasonal poems for example, along with designs for each month. Or try this: compose a Haiku, an ancient form of poetry that originated in Japan, and then share it with the world on a T-shirt. Writers want their words to live on long after they're gone. Cement stepping stones with your writing on them are eye-catching in the garden, and they'll inspire visitors for years to come, while a wooden Memory Frame that's decorated with your thoughts will be cherished for a lifetime. If you think it's sort of boring reading a normal book with two covers and pages in between, create a sturdy accordion folder that has a pocket for each chapter. If you have a lot of photos to go along with your writing, transfer them to fabric and create a book you can roll up and put in your pocket. From a Mood Mobile to The Incredible Shrinkable Charm Bracelet Poem, these projects will spark your imagination.
