The WITS Summer Camp programs begin on Monday, June 11. The camp, co-sponsored by Rice University, has been named the “Best Summer Program for Kids” by the Houston Press. The central campus at Annunciation Orthodox School is nearly full. There are still spaces available for children in grades K-5 on the north Houston campus, located at Aldine Academy.

    Hello,

    Launch Pad: Where Young Authors and Illustrators Take Off! is a new magazine devoted to publishing fiction, nonfiction, poetry, book reviews, and artwork by children ages 6-12. Would you please consider submitting some works (with or without illustrations) from your Young Writers’ Camps for possible publication in our magazine? (We encourage children to submit a few illustrations with their stories, although this is not a requirement.) The magazine offers children a wonderful opportunity to get published! We do not charge children or their parents any sort of publication fee.

    Please feel free to share the call for submissions with your instructors or any other interested parties or listservs.

    Please let me know if you might be interested.

    Sincerely,

    Paul Kelsey
