Vol. 5, No. 6
November in the U.S. is the season of giving thanks. I'm thankful for each of you! I'm thankful that you enrich the
lives of the children in our world by writing for them. I'm also thankful that I get to interact with many of you as
fellow authors on this fun, but often challenging journey of writing and publishing.
For this issue of Writing for Children's Magazines, I'm delighted to be able to share with you an interview
with Brian Lewis, Editor-in-Chief of Ember: A Journal of Luminous Things.
Melissa Abramovitz's excellent article can help us think about the pros and cons of writing for no-pay and low-pay
Notice: As of 2017, Writing for Children's Magazines will be published quarterly instead of bi-monthly.
