Christian Market Magazines

Most Christian magazines for children are not extremely high paying markets. However, if your goal is to direct the lives of children toward God, writing for these markets will be a blessing to you and to the children for which you write.

If you have a desire to write for this market, get Sally Stuart’s, Christian Writers’ Market Guide. There are about twelve pages of listings under children’s markets in her 2008 book. 

Magazine Markets for Children’s Writers, published by The Writers Institute, also has a listing for Christian magazines.

I can’t stress enough the importance of checking the market guides, studying the online sites, reading the articles published by each magazine, and following their guidelines.

DO YOUR HOMEWORK. It could be the difference between publication and drawers full of unpublished manuscripts.

You can do this!!

    Gloria, this is great advice! That’s how I got started. It’s a lot of FUN! Though the $$$ isn’t great, the rewards are outstanding! Children read our words and God uses them as He wills. What a privilege that is for Christian writers!
    Love, Sherri
