I'm working with a student writer this summer.  I found quite a few websites that list links to potential markets for young writers, but I'd like to suggest she start with a market that will encourage her or a market that is easy to break into.  Right now, it's pretty clear she falls to pieces when she gets rejected. 

Does anyone have any experience with markets for students and do you know which is best for a fragile writer?

I'd like this info too. My son has written a couple of poems that could be submitted somewhere. I know Highlights takes jokes and Stone Soup takes work but not much else. Thank for any help.

My son had poetry published in Creative Kids Magazine http://www.ckmagazine.org/ and Magic Dragon magazine http://www.magicdragonmagazine.com/.  They are both wonderful magazines and send lovely acceptance letters to the young writers.  They send a contributor copy as well.

We are looking for other markets for teens now and I'm interested in what other markets folks have found. My son is working on a fantasy book now.

 :goodluck with working with your student writer!  I wish her well with her writing and hope she finds a place to share her work!

Most of the magazines for teens accept poetry from teens, even Seventeen. Google teen magazines and look at guidelines for all of them.
