Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a great weekend.
After reading comments about some of my postings this month, I realized a few callouts have been for regional markets and contests, so I thought it would be a good idea to post about a national market. I think it helps to write around a theme, so I was happy to find that Pockets Magazine has a submission call out that focuses on themes.
Pockets Magazine out of Nashville, TN, is designed to connect kids 8-12 with "God the other six days." Pockets content includes fiction, scripture stories, puzzles and games, poems, recipes, colorful pictures, activities, and scripture readings. Freelance submissions of stories, poems, recipes, puzzles and games, and activities are welcome. The magazine is published monthly (except in February).
Here's some information I found about their themes for the next few months on the Pockets website:
Hope (for the April 2011 issue) Due Date: September 1, 2010.
Family - In This Together (for the May 2011 issue) Due Date: October 1, 2010
Caring for Creation (for the June 2011 issue) Due Date: November 1, 2010
For complete writer's guidelines, including rate of payment, their special needs, and submission requirements visit their website.
Good luck! If you submit and receive an acceptance, please let me know so I can recognize you right here!
