It’s time to roll up the sleeves and dig into another round of market links. I hope you find something you can use for your own work.

Disclaimer: Bear in mind that I am sharing these links not endorsing them. While I’ve checked out these sites, always read the complete guidelines before submitting anything AND always do your homework.

The Sun  prefers writing of a personal nature, and also accepts fiction, interviews and poetry. They aren’t interested in seeing journalistic pieces, opinions, or academic work. Selected excerpts from the magazine appear online each month.

Crafts ‘n Things is always on the lookout for crafty projects geared toward intermediate and advanced crafters. Types of crafts likely to find a home in their pages include sewing and needlework projects, paper crafts, beading, painting and clay. Example projects may be viewed on the website HERE.

With a core audience of girls 11-15, Girls’ Life covers the gamut of tween interests. Fashion, friendship, self-help, quizzes and crafts are mainstays. If you’re interested in writing for them, be sure to check this article which offers some inside information on how to pitch: http://www.girlslife.com/docs/Mediabistro.pdf

Coffee House Press  This literary publisher looks for full-length novels, collections of short stories, and some essay collections/memoirs.  You can see examples of titles they’ve published HERE.

U.S. Kids Magazines (part of the Better Health Institute) includes three titles for different age groups, Turtle, Humpty Dumpty, and Jack & Jill. They look for fiction, nonfiction, poetry and activities.
