Eugie Foster – Children’s Markets
This is a great site to visit if you are looking for children’s fiction markets. Best of all you’ll find markets arranged according to Pro and SemiPro levels (the amount they pay). This is helpful for many writers, especially those who are new or considering submitting to a new magazine. While updates are listed and do provide good information, they haven’t been updated in awhile. Otherwise an excellent site to find children’s fiction writing markets.
