The Craft of Children’s Magazines: A Hands-On Workshop

Date: 10/19/2019

Time: 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Driving Park Branch of the Columbus Metropolitan Library
1422 East Livingston Ave. – Columbus, Ohio 43205

How do you sell your work to children’s magazines?

It takes more than good content! In this three-hour, hands-on workshop, I’ll give you the tools you need to understand the world of children’s magazines.

I’ll take you behind the scenes at Cricket Media and demonstrate how an editorial team’s work relates to you. Then you’ll learn how to analyze a magazine in a hands-on exercise. Finally, you’ll have time to work on a submission based on current magazine needs.

You’ll leave with a better understanding of how to be successful in magazines and a great start to your own submission! Writers and illustrators at all levels are encouraged to attend!


The Aztecs and Me

Aztec book

The Aztec civilization has fascinated me ever since I read about the discovery of Tenochtitlán in National Geographic in the 70s, so I jumped at the chance to write about it for a series on world civilizations. (Although they wouldn’t have called themselves Aztecs–that was a European word.)
