A new literary magazine is soon to launch and we are looking for 9-14yr old girls to contribute articles, essays, and opinions!  This magazine is all about empowering young girls by keeping them positive, focused, highlighting their achievements, speaking freely about issues, avoiding gossip and a celebrity/designer centric reporting, etc.  But, most importantly, the content is for girls, from girls! You have not seen anything like this before and our girls need it!

Please send full name, age, grade level, a short self description of her personality and what makes her unique, along with a 50-100 essay or opinion on one of the following categories. We want creative (and fun, when possible!) writing samples that express your girl's personality.

  • The environment (concern for planet, call to action, tip, or example of a local project/something they have done)
  • Divorce and how it affects children (or her)
  • Peer pressure
  • Fashion
  • A favorite hobby or pass time

Upon expressed interest of the editors, we will contact a legal guardian for each girl and set up a time to meet via telephone or web conference with the editors of the magazine, investors, and other contributors. The submitted sample may or may not be the piece published in the magazine. Writing samples will be used to determine personality fits and writing styles only.

We are also taking submissions for a rotating ‘featured' girl section. Girls can nominate themselves or another girl within the age group. Girls will be selected for their scholastic and/or athletic achievement as well as their involvement with community service. We will need recommendation letters, school transcript or grades, etc. to corroborate statements made during the nomination process.

Just FYI, do not reply to this post with your child's and your information. Send me a message to my inbox.
