Writers write to be read. Your young writer is no exception. If you’re looking for additional motivation and recognition beyond hanging a poem or story on the refrigerator or stapling printouts for proud grandparents, you might want to consider ePublishing. It’s free and relatively simple to make your student’s works available online. There is some formatting required and a self-designed cover might take some work but the content can be any length and is easily edited and augmented. The eBook can be priced for sale or offered free of charge. Friends, family and even the eWorld at large, can then download the book to their computers for printout or to their handheld readers. I would suggest using Smashwords since they offer access to multiple eReaders (Sony, Barnes and Noble, Kindle, Kobo etc.) If you’re not familiar with the site, check them out at www.smashwords.com.
