[Poetry Friday] Magazine Markets: Poetry Written For Children



Happy Poetry Friday to you all! This week's round up is hosted by Laura Purdie Salas at her Writing the World for Kids blog.  Laura is asking us to write Equation Poems for her padlet. Once you've finished up here, be sure to click over to enjoy all of this week's Equation Poems and poetically inspiring posts.

I recently presented a short poetry workshop to my local SCBWI writer's group. During the course of putting my talk together, I updated my list of magazines that consider poetry specifically written for children. I'm sharing that list here. I'll be adding it as a linked page on the side bar next week. If you know of any oter markets that consider poetry written for children, please share those links in the comments. I would like to keep an up-to-date comprehensive list.

  2. Fabulous list! Thank you. I didn't see you on PF last week (perhaps you were presenting). I used your post to spark a new poem. Thanks for that too. How did your presentation go? Were you pleased? Wish I could have been there. I love workshops.

    1. Yes, last week I had a deadline to meet and a meeting scheduled that kept me away and unable to participate. But, I did go back and read your post, and what a wonderful Fisher-inspired poem you created. So unexpected to find so many sounds in a library, but you nailed it!

    1. Me too, Irene. My kiddos had a subscription to Babybug and Ladybug when they were younger. I think the rhythm and language of poetry has fostered their love of music.
