Vol. 3, No. 4
Hello from Writing for Children's Magazines! Whether your summertime is hot and muggy
or just right, I hope you'll be inspired to
write something fresh and new or revise a previous piece and send it out.
If you're writing a fresh, new piece, you may want to check out
Nancy Allen's very helpful article on tips for naming your characters.
We're also delighted to have Editor Kelli Gilmore with us this issue to share information about
Sparkle and SHINE brightly, two Christian children's magazines published by GEMS.
If you'd like to submit something for Writing for Children's Magazines, 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 planned an overview for the magazine you're considering writing about, feel free to email me.
I welcome your submissions, queries, and suggestions at
My best wishes to you~
Evelyn Christensen, Editor
