Submitting Poems Since 1998

" I have been submitting my students' poems to you since 1998. I love the self esteem it has given those students who are fortunate enough to have their poetry published in your book! I know for a fact that your company is not a scam because not every child gets published. You also publish the poems regardless of whether they purchase a book or not. "

Giving Students Confidence and Hope

" Let me thank you for all that your organization has done for the children of Presidio. The publication has given several of my "at-risk" students confidence and hope, it has helped to preserve the memory of others. Together the students earned over $1,000 to purchase their books while dabbling in entrepreneurship. The book itself gave these kids motivation to try their hardest and express themselves earnestly and honestly. Though I am not currently teaching, I hope to again open more children's eyes and hearts by giving them the opportunity to become published by your organization. Thank you for the opportunities you have given to us all. "

She Is Absolutely Thrilled!

" My daughter created this poem completely on her own, and I only found out about her submission though her teacher at Maplewood Middle School, when her teacher advised me that her poem was chosen for publication. She is absolutely thrilled!! She is not only a good student, but plays sports on regulated teams (Soccer, baseball, and basketball). Her teacher was so proud of her that he told his other classes about her poem being published. "

No Idea What a Big Deal This Is

" Thank you for selecting my students' work. You have no idea what a big deal this is. Some of my children cry, others dance, and some just sit and smile. Thank you! "

Students Become Motivated

---- Susan Keehner

Great Motivational Tool

" As previously mentioned, these writing contests are great motivational tools for my students! The thought of having a poem published for everyone to see is a definite lure, especially for those eighth graders that want to pursue careers as journalists or writers in the future. Thanks again for making writing enjoyable for these up and coming authors. "
