 This post explains the purpose of Creative Journeys and the submission process.

     One of the wonderful things about homeschooling is that our kids have time to pursue their creative interests, with many of us finding ways to blend that into his or her homeschool journey.  Painting, photography, writing, music, and drawing are just some of the ways homeschooled kids express themselves.

The creative endeavors of homeschoolers are as diverse and eclectic as the homeschool community itself. We at SEA want to give them a place to show off their many talents. With the launch of our new website, we are starting Kid’s Creative Journeys. This will be a place for homeschooling students to share their art, craft projects, music, dance performances, poetry, fiction and nonfiction writing, or any of the other passions he or she would like to share. Whether your student wrote a unique short story, a phenomenal essay, made a beautiful sculpture, excels at costume design, or has a voice for Broadway, our community would like to celebrate with you and see and hear it. Let’s show the world our student’s creativity and talent, let’s inspire others, and let’s be inspired by the amazing work of homeschoolers everywhere.

We are also looking for students who would like to be considered to write guest blog post about their homeschool experience, special projects they’re working on or anything homeschool related. Student bloggers will go through the same editorial process as our writers. This can be a wonderful learning experience for students interested in writing, blogging, or journalism.  We are accepting submissions from homeschooling students in the form of writing, video, and photos (photos must be a minimum resolution of 1200 x 1200). Please include a short bio for the student and information on the piece being submitted. You may send a photo of the student if you would like it published with their work, but this is not required.

If your child would like to be considered for publication, please send his or her submission to SEA Homeschoolers. Submission does not guarantee publication.
