About the Publisher:
Stone Soup is the literary magazine and website 100% written and illustrated by kids through age 13. Now in its 47th year, Stone Soup has been inspiring children to read, write and create their own artworks for publication in our magazine since 1973.

Art Submission Info:
A long time ago, when Stone Soup was first founded, we didn’t commission illustrations. Instead, we published pieces of art that excited us—regardless of their connection to a specific story! We have recently decided to return to this practice. This means, we are no longer commissioning illustrations for the magazine. From now on, we will be accepting standalone art—drawing, paintings, photographs, collages as well as images of sculpture, diorama, ceramics, etc.—that we simply love and want to share with all of our readers. Your art will be featured in a special “art” section of our new digital magazine. In addition, we might also choose to pair it with a story or a poem, in which case it would be featured in two places in the issue. Please consider submitting your best pieces of art to the magazine.

We are primarily looking for quality materials for school-aged readers from around 12 years onwards. Having said that, we won't be too excited seeing conventional materials for children.

Read our Issues to see what sort of work move us!

First established in 2014, BALLOONS Lit. Journal (BLJ) is the ONLY young-reader-oriented literary journal that is FREELY accessible to all by online reading with a fully edited ready-to-print PDF version downloadable for every issue.

We invite poetry and fiction submissions by email. All works must be original, previously unpublished and written in English. But if you also have fantastic art and/or photographic work that we think suit the journal, we will certainly let them in too. We love pleasant surprises - if you have anything which we have never imagined before, send it in!
