The Write Gifts for Writers!


Making your wish list? Checking it twice? Can’t recall if you’ve been naughty or nice? Well, I’ve got the hook up that will make your stockings runneth over! Print this list and send it to Santa, or link here when sending your BFF an email, subject line: “Holiday Hints!”

  1. Books! (Of course) But these are fun, young writer-friendly and are chock full of exercises, writing tips and ideas: check out “The I Love To Write Book: Ideas & Tips for Young Writers“, by Mary-Lane Kamberg; or “Writer’s Express: A Handbook for Young Writers, Thinkers and Learners,” by Dave Kemper, Ruth Nathan and Patrick Sebranek.
  2. Have a favorite notebook that you write all of your ideas and stories into and then cringe at the thought of TYPING it all into your PC or Mac? Have no fear – It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane! It’s a FLY Fusion Pentop Computer. This cool gadget transfers your handwritten stories directly from your notebook to your computer as a TYPED manuscript. Now that’s what I call a personal secretary!
  3. Engage all of your senses when writing with Smencils! 100% recycled pencils, each with a delicious scent and your school or organization can sell them in bulk and earn money as a fundraiser! Mmmm, Very Berry.
  4. Complete a novel during NaNoWriMo and know not what to do? Check out They will typeset your story and your own cover art into a paperback or hardcover novel. You can order one for bragging rights, or give the link to family so they can help support your “starving artist” status by ordering copies of your novel on-line!
  5. FREE!! Yes, Free gifts are best, especially when you’re buying. Go to and sign up for Hope Clark’s free weekly newsletter “Writing Kid.” You’ll get articles on the craft of writing and lists of writing contests delivered right to your email box.

Is there anything you’re wishing for this Holiday Season? Post it here! Maybe you’ll inspire another young writer to make their wish list and believe in holiday magic…
