Overview

On paper, plastic, or cloth; decorated with rubber stamps, stencils, and markers: get your work into print! Every lively page, bursting with boxed tips, full-color photos, and drawings, turns the publishing process into a fun adventure. These unique projects display dozens of creative ways to showcase words, from books to beyond. Want to write about someone you love? Put your thoughts on a memory frame around a photograph. Have a jewel of a poem? Copy it onto a sheet of shrinkable plastic, cut the words into cool shapes, stick them in the oven, and voila! They've become charms to hang on a bracelet. Light up language with a literary luminary, record a story on tape, fold an accordion book, and lots more. Plus: amazing writing secrets revealed; advice on making design decisions; inside info on famous authors; comments from real kids about how they get ideas; and more.

Publishers Weekly
In Print! by Joe Rhatigan explores a plethora of projects for kids to turn their writing into something concrete. Why be limited to plain sheets of paper when kids could create a calendar of seasonal poetry, or a "memory" picture frame about a loved one, or a haiku T-shirt? Includes tips on the writing process and on submitting works for publication, with a list of magazines that accept the work of young writers. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
