The fourth and final format I’ll mention here about writing nonfiction for children’s magazines is one you’ll find in numerous magazines: Interviews of kids who are making a difference in our world.
Clubhouse Jr. loves these kind of articles, too! I’ve never written about real life stories of extraordinary kids for them, but my sweet writer friend Margaret Albertson has!
Here are tips Margaret has to share with all of you:
Interview your feature subject.
How should you connect?
* Through a friend of a friend
* Through a publicist
* Through an author of a story you read in a newspaper or online
Interviews will give you lots of good quotes to use in the article!
Always pray before you do the interview.
Ask the child about how God influences his or her life
Thanks, Margaret, for those great tips!
