Faithwriters for Kids: A Writing Website for Kids

Posted on

If you’re looking for something new to shake up your writing curriculum, I’ve found it. Faithwriters for Kids is a safe, Christian writing website exclusively for kids. It’s an off-shoot of Faithwriters, a Christian writing site that I’ve been a member of for several years. It’s helped many published authors hone their craft, and now they are expanding into the arena of children’s writing.

 Faithwriters for Kids is geared for ages 7-14. There are seven different categories for children to submit their writing and is broken down into four age groups. Only registered members may leave comments on the submitted articles, but the comments are set and chosen from a drop-down menu. Cute smilie icons add even more fun to leaving comments.

The big draw for both homeschool moms and students is the weekly writing topics. With a new topic introduced each Thursday, moms can easily integrate the prompt into weekly lesson planning. The gratifying feedback received when others comment, encourages kids to continue writing.

Now the writing contest has an incentive that should encourage your students without any help from you—cash prizes. For the writing contest, there are only two age groups, and the top two winners in each group receive gift certificates, and the two winning entries are published in FW magazine. The current topic: The New Year Contest: A Fresh Start. You can find more details about the contest here. The deadline for entry is December 12.

About rcwriter

Being a freelance writer, book reviewer, dedicated mom, and popular teacher at her homeschool support group—Renewed Moms Ministry keeps Rhonda Clark extremely busy. She writes most all of her own curriculum for her classes that have varied from elementary science, to middle school history and literature, to high school computer. Her middle school history class, A Renaissance World, will be featured at SchoolhouseTeacher.com fall of 2014. When not shuttling her daughter to soccer, archery, bowling, or any other number of endless activities, she devotes time to writing homeschool curriculum and her first novel. Scrapbooking, paper crafting, and reading are downtime activities, but the one thing she enjoys most is spending time with her husband of 20 years. They have two children, a college age son, and a high school age daughter. God blessed Rhonda with a quirky and funky sense of humor. This combines with down home charm, and allows her to connect to readers as a friend. With an ability to put a fresh twist on basic thoughts and Biblical teachings she brings a new perspective to her audience.
