and then I'll let somebody else talk for a while.
The editorial/submission guidelines for Cricket Magazine and some other children's magazines published by Carus Publishing are here.
Kim's puke poem and some of the other work we heard this month are pieces that these magazines would seriously consider. Cricket pays 25 cents per word for stories and up to 3 dollars a line for poetry.
If you send something to them, be sure to include a self-addressed, stamped envelope.
As I recall, my lovely wife Lauren's first real publication was a short story she placed in their teen mag Cicada.
If you're looking for another real audience for your students, I think Cicada also publishes some work written by teens themselves.
See you in September.
