Young Writer Resources


For each of these magazines, it’s important to either write to them or check out their website for writers guidelines. You may also want to write for a sample copy so you can see what they publish. Most magazines “pay” in sample copies rather than money. It normally takes several months to hear back from them, so be patient! Always include an SASE (Self Addressed Stamped Envelope) with your submission and/or your request for guidelines. And, most importantly, have fun!
