Vol. 4, No. 6
Hi from Writing for Children's Magazines! I hope you had a fun Halloween and maybe even got the inspiration
for a new magazine story or poem from all the holiday activities.
If you did get inspired, but seem to be having trouble getting that new piece written, you'll enjoy Marilyn Kratz's
delightful article about the "But First" syndrome.
I'm also happy to share with you an interview with Sara Hilton, Editor-in-Chief of Lilybell magazine.
If you'd like to submit something for Writing for Children's Magazines, please send it my way.
Guidelines are at the bottom of this
page. If you want to query an idea for an article before writing it or want to check to find out if someone else has
already submitted an overview for the magazine you're planning to write about, feel free to email
me. I'm also happy to consider reprints.
I welcome your submissions, queries, and suggestions at
My best wishes to you~
Evelyn Christensen, Editor
