Fun Friday: Fabulous Finds for Kid Writers


Where do you find magazine markets for your fairy tales?
http://www.kidmagwriters.com/: For an up to date list for children's magazine writers, the Kid Magazine Writer is the place to go.


Where do you find statistics and reliable information when writing for children?  Wikipedia may not be the best choice for facts.  Here are a few of my favorite links.  Feel free to share yours!


www.aap.org: The American Academy of Pediatrics, dedicated to the health of all children, is a fantastic resource for current health dilemmas from asthma to immunizations.  Writing an article on childhood obesity?  Check AAP for the latest statistics.

http://www.refdesk.com/fastfact.html: Fast Facts is just that!  Facts that are well organized and quick to find.  Stumped for ideas?  Come click around Fast Facts for a fanciful find!

http://www.eia.gov/kids/index.cfm : Energy Kids is run by US Energy Information Administration.  Do you want to keep up with solar energy and alternative energy sources?  Visit Energy Kids to boost your knowledge.

http://kids.nationalgeographic.com/kids/: National Geographic Kids Dares you to explore into worlds unknown.  Explore continents, animals everywhere and current news stories that change our world.


Please share your favorite links!
