Hi guys,

I'm a senior at high school and my senior project is to start a children's magazine called JJ Express. We are currently looking for talented writers who are interested in writing:

(a) articles

(b) stories

OR

(c) plot lines for comics/cartoons

Visit our website www.jjexpress.sitesled.com for more info or email me at editor.jjexpress@gmail.com. Let me know if you have any ideas about where else to look for writers...

Submission guidelines below for your convenience.

***

Writing

We need articles, stories, plays, and comics storylines etc.

-Limit word length: approximately 800-1000 words (depending on nature of piece)

-Double-space all work

-We’re sorry, we do not return writing. Make sure you have your own copy

When preparing your submission, please keep in mind the audience we are targeting. Read past issues of American Girl, Disney Adventures, and Muse to get an idea of the style we are looking for.

All work must be original. Download an originality statement from our website http://jjexpress.sitesled.com/originalitystatement/ or send us a SASE for one.

Each piece must be labeled with the artist’s name, home address, and a cover letter.

Include a self-addressed, stamped envelope (SASE) for a response.

You will receive a response within a month if we plan on using you work. If you have not heard from us by then, you can assume that we could not use your work at this time. Do not be discouraged and keep trying! Feel free to email us at jjexpress_editor@gmail.com to known the status of your submission.

We are open to new ideas too. If you have an idea that has not been included in the submissions guidelines (i.e. games, crafts, puzzles, etc.) feel free to send you idea in - we love fresh new ideas!

Guess not, seeing as I never got a reply since I originally posed my query back in January.
