Our small team is not able to screen every submission, so we ask that you please carefully screen your students' submissions before uploading them to us.  Submissions should not include:


- Inappropriate student photos 

- Statements of religious beliefs

- Statements about political candidates

- Statements that are morbid or violent in nature

- Judgements about individuals or groups of people


Similarly, when you receive the exchange writings from students at other schools, please review them before sharing them with your students and alert us if you find any of the same.

Upload Instructions

After you have saved each of your students' writing files according to our instructions above and screened them for inappropriate content, please upload the files here by dragging and dropping or clicking "select files" to choose them from a location on your computer.

We will then carry out the one-to-one exchange with students at other schools and share their writing with you in return!
