Mission Statement

Founded in 1973, Stone Soup--once called "The New Yorker of the 8 to 13 set" (Ms Magazine)--is the nonprofit literary magazine 100% written and illustrated by kids. At Stone Soup, we believe, above all, in the power of reading and writing to change a life and to change the world. More than ever, kids need places where they can learn to slow down, look closely, and think deeply. Reading Stone Soup provides that opportunity. As a magazine and a publisher, Stone Soup also provides a platform to empower kids to be authors of their own stories, both real and imagined. We show them their voice truly matters.

Description

We publish a bimonthly print magazine of poetry, fiction, essays, and artwork as well as a blog that includes book reviews, a poetry podcast, travelogues, and responses to current events-all by kids under 14. We also run an annual book contest, and have a growing catalog of novels and poetry collections by young writers. We also run a weekly writing workshop, summer camps on a variety of subtopics in writing, and offer free curriculum materials for teachers using Stone Soup in the classroom. The extraordinary writing and art in Stone Soup is widely recognized for its excellence, and work from the magazine is routinely included in major school textbooks and assessment tests. In fall 2022, eight of our themed anthologies were published in China by Beijing Yutian Hangfen Books Company.
