Kid Pub
http://www.kidpub.org/kidpub/

A CONTENT:
Has a database of stories written by children and information on how others can publish their own stories.

A AESTHETICS:
All pages have the Kid Pub logo which gives the site a children-based feel to it. The individual pages are graphics free however and seem more geared toward older children and adults.

A ORGANIZATION:
The site has a search form to find specific stories and topics and the links are easy to follow.

A REVIEW:
This site is a basic forum for children to publish their writings thereby strengthening their creativity. It has a limited scope but handles its subject very well, perhaps because it is so focused. It is a very small site, managed by one person, but with a lot of attention and heart. The site makes it very easy to submit works, there is even a form where children just fill in the blanks. It must be a thrill for children to see their work on the internet! There is a community supported feel to the page with listings of schools that publish their writing as well. Anyone with creative children should check out this page.
