First Magazine Submission


“In the world of Cupboardland, there lived three little jars called Oregano, Basil, and Thyme.”

This is the first line of my jar story, which I am excited to report I sent last Friday to be considered by a magazine. Woo hoo! This is my very first magazine submission.

I studied several magazines, before deciding to send it to the Cricket group of magazines, which includes “Ladybug” and “Spider”.

I had also considered sending it to the Highlights group, which includes “High Five”. I decided to go with the Cricket group for several reasons. The primary one is that “Highlights” buys all your rights, including copyright.

I would love to get my work printed in the Owl family of magazines. So far my research has shown though that you need to apply for a position there. So maybe once I get a few magazine stories out, I will be able to work there.

Now comes the waiting: 3-6 months. Ugh!

So onward to my next challenge, a contest at “Children’s Writer”.

Have you had any “firsts” lately?
