Writing isn’t just for adults.
To encourage your children in their writing and creative endeavors, here are 5 magazines that accept submissions from kids. Some accept both writing and art.
As always, spend time getting to know the magazine and then read and follow the guidelines thoroughly. Please be aware several of these magazines require submission via the postal system rather than online.
Highlights for Children https://www.highlightskids.com/send-us-your-creative-work

Amazing Kids Magazine accepts submissions from kids age 5-18. http://mag.amazing-kids.org/get-involved/write-for-us/
Stone Soup is a magazine of writing and art by kids ages 13 and younger. http://www.stonesoup.com/stone-soup-contributor-guideline/
You may also want to check out your local newspapers to see if they have kids sections you can submit to.
Make Your Submission a Homeschool Project
This makes a great project for homeschoolers. Many of these magazines can be found at the library, where your children can read and study the magazine’s articles, activities, and style. Then they can craft their story (or art) and submit.
Do you know anyone who homeschools? Be sure to share this post with them.
