Parents and children submit questions to the Guild about publishing children's work. There are numerous magazines that will accept children's work and it helps to know what kinds of writing each publishes. You can check out these magazines at your local bookstore or library and visit their web sites before deciding where you'll send your work. Most publishers have a web site or a brochure that tells you how to submit, whether to include a self-addressed envelope, and whether they also take artwork such as drawings or photographs. If not, you can always ask.

Good luck. Many children's book authors and illustrators got a start publishing something as children.
