Publishing Opportunities for young writers:

 

 

Indiana Kids magazine,

a brand new family project (not a commercial one) written, edited and published for kids, about kids and by kids, is seeking submissions from Indiana kids across the state. 
This online quarterly magazine is a family project of the Miller and Anderson families of central Indiana, founded to teach our own family's Indiana kids how to work together, how to interview people (which involves a lot of listening), how to interpret and write about what they've learned, and to introduce them to many other interesting Indiana kids around the state they might otherwise not get to meet.  Please send us your poetry, short stories, art work and photography. Make sure the photographs are a jpg file. The drawings can be pdf files. The poems and stories can be either Microsoft Word or just written in the body of the email. 
If  your submission fits the themes and mission of the magazine, we will publish it in future issues of Indiana Kids. Please send your work toindianakidsmag@gmail.com  and put "submission" in the subject line.  Please let us know what you would like to see us write about in Indiana Kids in future issues. Take a look at the magazine via this link:

Writing workshops/groups in Indiana

 

http://michianawriters.org/

Founded in 1991, the Michiana Writers’ Workshop is a support group for writers in the South Bend/Elkhart, Indiana and Niles, Michigan area. Basically a critique group, we also share market news, hold workshops and encourage our fellow writers.  We meet twice a month, at the  Old National Bank on Eddy Street in South Bend on the first Monday of the month and in Elkhart at Towne Restoration on County Road 11 on the third Monday of the month.

Meetings are from 7 pm to 9 pm. Guests are always welcome. Please call  before attending your first meeting to verify location and time.
