It’s Monday, so how about some writing markets to pursue?

Guidelines for Young Authors

A Fly in Amber invites submissions by young authors and artists under the age of 18. Make sure you have parental permission to submit works to our website — we will need to work with them as well as you in the event your piece is accepted. Please indicate that you are a young author by checking the appropriate box on the submission form.

Response Time, Rights Selling and Payment Rates

  • A Fly in Amber buys First Exclusive Electronic Rights to all works we accept for a period of six months. After that, any and all rights revert to the author. We ask, though we do not require, that you allow us to maintain a copy of your piece in our archives. However, you may request that we remove your work from our site at any time after our initial six month period expires.
  • We pay a flat rate of $10 per piece. Artwork pays $20 per piece. Works selected as our features receive an additional $10 “prize payment.” Payment method, as well as any additional per-submission considerations, will be negotiated at the time of acceptance.
  • Make sure to provide current contact information with your submission, as this is our only means of getting in touch with you should we accept your piece for publication.
  • We strive to give every submission a response within 60 days of receipt. If it’s been more than 60 days since you submitted your piece and you have not heard back from us, please send us a query at In all probability, the absence of a response indicates that something went wrong with our response email — perhaps we filed the wrong address or otherwise could not deliver to the address you provided.

Bookworm Magazine publishes the stories, poems, essays and artwork of kids ages six through fifteen.  It is edited by Sophie McKibben, who founded the magazine in 2004 when she was in sixth grade and noticed that there weren’t a lot of places for kids to get their work into print.

Bookworm comes out four times a year and has featured the writing and art of kids from all over the United States and, so far, five foreign countries.

Bookworm is always on the lookout for writers and artists.  You can submit your work electronically to You can also send submissions by mail using the address on our Be a Contributor page.
