Welcome to Alphabet Soup

We printed the first issue of Alphabet Soup magazine in 2008. The print magazine has now closed but we continued with the magazine’s blog and website. In 2014 we combined them, and now everything you loved in the pages of the magazine is here:

  • stories, poems and artwork by kids
  • book reviews by kids and occasionally by adults (for kids)
  • author and illustrator interviews
  • writing and art comps for kids
  • news about book-related events
  • writing tips

… and more!

We’d love to consider your work for publication on the blog, so check out the submission guidelines and send us your creations.

From 2014, all the book reviews on this site are written by children on our Book Review Team. We no longer accept self-published books for review at Alphabet Soup. Please read our book review policy on the Contact Us page.
