Additions to the Young Writers' List

The Apprentice Writer is an annual publication of stories, essays, poetry, and photography by students in grades 9th-12th. Submission guidelines are here. Deadline for submitting is March 15. This is a non-paying market, but you do receive a copy of the publication.

See above for information on Relate. They are also happy to have young authors write for them.

Yarn has already been on our adult list, but I discovered it has no age restrictions for authors. Guidelines are here.

See above for information on Go!. They wrote me, "If you know of middle and high schoolers, who like to write, please let them know about us. We're always looking for young writers, who like to write for their peers."

Special Issue Opportunity

Dark Moon Digest is publishing a Young Adult Dark Moon Digest Special Issue. This is for YA horror stories. The deadline is April 15, 2013. It's a paying market. Submission guidelines are here.

Submissions Re-open

Knowonder re-opened submissions in January. They are changing their format. Instead of offering their free Story-a-Day format, beginning in March they will feature a teaser paragraph and brief information about each of ten stories. The reader can then buy the collection of ten stories in print or for the Kindle.

New Themes Listed

SHINE brightly has posted new themes for the 2013-2014 school year.

Sparkle has also posted new themes.


Since the beginning of 2013, Writing for Children's Magazines is publishing bi-monthly instead of monthly. The next issue will therefore be May. If you're wanting a reminder to let you know when a new issue is posted, I encourage you to make use of the free resource http://www.changedetection.com. If you sign up, they'll send you an email letting you know when a change has been made on the Writing for Children's Magazines homepage.
