On Publishing … and Other Forms of Insanity
The magazine market for younger readers is one many writers tend to miss. This is in part due to the fact that, unlike the adult literary journal market, one does not need to be a writer to publish in children’s magazines. Articles can be written by parents, teachers, anyone with enough contact with children and young people to know what they like.
But where fiction is concerned, skilled writers are at a premium. If you write novels or are in the process of writing a novel for young readers, consider expanding on one of your characters or using your settings for a short piece.
Having your bio printed in a children’s magazine will help draw attention to you and your books.
