Magazine Nonfiction that Grabs Kids

Too many of the children’s nonfiction articles that editors receive each day lack a connection with kids. We hear and read over and over that editors are looking for nonfiction, but many times that isn’t translating into sales for individual writers because of these missed connections. Here are some tips to help stop those missed connections:

1. Don’t Parent. Do Entertain and Inform.
Kids don’t read nonfiction to replace parental involvement. They read
nonfiction because it’s interesting, lively, fun, and includes things
they want. Too many writers are crafting nonfiction to fix a perceived
flaw in today’s kids and editors know kids won’t read lectures, so
editors don’t buy them.
