I’ve written for health care and other industry trade magazines for years. When I decided to write children’s literature, it took a while for me to discover children’s magazines as something to try. But I love it! I’ve done over 27 articles so far. It gives me license to research and dig deeply into subjects that take me all over the world of topics. It also puts me on a strict deadline. I like that. I’m one of those people that likes checklists, deadlines, spreadsheets, and project mapping. Not everyone enjoys doing that. But if you want to get a taste of writing for kids, definitely check out children’s magazines and their submission guidelines. Try your hand at submitting a detailed query. You might get hooked!
