Nonfiction for Children’s Magazines: Join Me in the Journey!


I sat down this morning to start a new manuscript. It’s a nonfiction article for a children’s magazine.

I gathered all my materials and got settled down to get started.

And then I had a lightbulb moment.


Would you like to follow along and write a nonfiction article to submit to a children’s magazine, too?

I’ll show you step-by-step the process I go through. You can write one while I write one and then you can submit it to the same magazine I’m submitting to or you can submit it to the children’s magazine of your choice.

I mean, it’s no fun to go on a cruise all by yourself, right?! (Do you like this photo of a cruise ship I took when I was riding the ferry down at Galveston, Texas?) I thought it would be much more fun to do this together!

So get out your pens and pencils. Put on your thinking cap. And join me in the journey ahead if you’d like to write and submit a nonfiction article to a children’s magazine!

We’ll get started in my very next post.
