Free Publishing Site, K-8
LaunchPad is a publishing site that provides young writers and illustrators with an online method for sharing their original stories, poems, book reviews, or illustrations. An editorial team reviews each submission and only accepts those they consider quality pieces. LaunchPad is different from other publishing sites in that submissions are accepted free of charge, which also means there is no physical book produced. Students are required to provide a parent’s email address as a security method. Reading the pieces is fairly easy. A scrolling window allows the student to browse the pages of a selected title without having to navigate multiple windows. The student also has the ability to download the file.
