Vol. 3, No. 5
Hi from Writing for Children's Magazines! September, with kids back in school,
is a great time for focusing on our writing, capturing those fleeting ideas we had during
busy summer days, and turning them into stories and articles to submit to magazines.
In the spirit of end-of-summer pruning which some of you may be doing,
Marilyn Kratz reminds us in her article that aspects of our stories may also need pruning.
In addition, I've included an overview of the summer issue of
Fun For Kidz. The format for this magazine has an exciting new look, and I wanted to give you a
flavor of how it's changed.
If you'd like to submit something for Writing for Children's Magazines, please send it my way.
Guidelines are at the bottom of this
page. If you want to query an idea for an article before writing it or want to check to find out if someone else has
already submitted an overview for the magazine you're planning to write about, feel free to email
me. I'm also happy to consider reprints.
I welcome your submissions, queries, and suggestions at
My best wishes to you~
Evelyn Christensen, Editor
