When I was a kid, I loved to read – and write. I wrote stories a lot in elementary school and junior high (yeah, that’s what they called it “back in the day.”).
I had no idea I was a “budding young author.” All I knew was that making up stories and writing them out was FUN. And I would have loved a community of like-minded kids to share my stories, and passion, with. Of course, personal computers and the internet were barely on the radar when I was that age. But now, the options for that kind of community are endless – though not necessarily safe.
But FaithWriters has just the right option for the budding young author in your life – whether it be a child, grandchild, niece or nephew, neighbor, or student.
FaithWriters for Kids is a writing community especially for Christian kids between 7 and 14. There they can share poems, stories, jokes, thoughts about God, and anything else they wish in a safe, Christian environment. There’s even a weekly topic if they need writing ideas. And, just like the adult FaithWriters site, there’s an opportunity to leave feedback – kid to kid. (Just FYI – the members choose from a list of comments/emoticons as a response to writing, so there is no concern about mean-spirited comments on stories)
Does this sound like something a 7-to-14-year-old in your life would enjoy? Have him or her sign up. It’s free!
