1 15 WAYS TO PUBLISH STUDENT WRITING DR. JILL M. OLTHOUSE

2 PUBLISHING: WHY & HOW? Why? Publishing is probably the least used aspect of the writing process in schools. Publishing emphasizes finishing a complete work and producing a quality product. Publishing emphasizes that writing is a social process an exchange of ideas between authors and readers, not just a performance for the teachers.. Having feedback from readers provides motivation for writing and emphasizes higher level thinking such as creativity and organization. How? Give students examples of child writers who published best selling works it is possible! (Mattie Stepanek, Christopher Paolini, Brianna & Brittany Winner, etc.) Caution that instant success is not probable: Children should begin with small goals such as publishing for family and friends, and later progress to publishing online and entering contests. Students and teachers should never pay to enter contests and should never buy more copies of self-published books than they are willing to distribute.
