Recently I have been researching children’s magazine markets. I have not abandoned my picture book writing. However, some of my stories I believe would be better suited to magazines.
Here are three children’s magazines I have submitted to and that you might want to too:
1. Cricket Media
Cricket Media has five literary magazines and six nonfiction magazines you can submit to. Submit your story through submittable for the literary magazines and send a query if you are interested in the nonfiction magazines. Click here for more information.
2. Kayak Magazine
I recently sent a query to the editor of Kayak magazine, a Canadian history magazine for children ages 8 to 13. Unfortunately, I got a rejection the same day. However, it’s nice to know that the editor is open to querying. Here is the list of e-mails for Kayak magazine and its magazine for adults, Canada’s History.
3. Highlights Magazine
Highlights has several different magazines you can submit to through submittable. Click here for more information.
Watch this podcast by Katie Davis for some tips about writing nonfiction for children’s magazines. She’ll even give some links to a couple of nonfiction children’s magazines you can submit to.
Right now we are studying “Anatomy of Nonfiction” by Margery Facklam and Peggy Thomas in my Word by Word Book Club on Facebook. I highly recommend this book for people who are interested in writing nonfiction articles and books.
I am also considering attending The Institute for Writers. By the way, they have a holiday contest. The deadline is October 31. I am dusting off one of my old manuscripts and submitting it. Maybe you would like to too? Here are the details.
