A Great Website If You Write For Children's Magazines

If you want to write for children’s magazines, there is a website that has oodles of information. It is called Kid Magazine Writers and can be found at KidMagWriters.com. There is now a link on my blog. This site lists kid’s magazines alphabetically and when you click on them you can learn more about the magazine and usually find submission guidelines or at least contact information.
Under Market Info, you will find a special in-depth report on one of the magazines on their site. A section called Inside Markets lists new kids magazines, and the Dead Zone lists magazines that are no longer functioning.
The Working Day section has a section called Fresh Ideas that is an inspirational writer boost. There is a Technique section with headings like That’s a Fact, Storytellers, Meter Readers (poetry trivia) and Word Wizard.
There is also an archive section where magazine there are two headings: Editors speak and Special Report. You can hear what the editor from a particular magazine has to say or look at an html of a special article.
The Writer’s Digest has deemed Kid Mag Writers as one of the 101 best websites for writers. It’s higher than that on my list. It makes finding magazines that fit what I like to write a much simpler task.
