KNOW Magazine seeks short science-related fiction

Posted on November 22, 2011


KNOW is the “younger sibling” to YES Mag: The Science Magazine for Adventurous Minds (formerly, YES Mag: Canada’s Science Magazine for Kids). KNOW’s first issue was published in Jan/Feb 2006. KNOW seeks to encourage interest and appreciation for science in children, provide positive role models for both girls and boys, and inspire children to continue pursuing their interest in science. KNOW is for children ages 6 to 9, and strives to engage young readers in a fun, informative, and interactive way, keeping in mind that children this age have a range of reading abilities and limited science background. Every issue of KNOW contains short news items, regular departments, a lengthy section related to a theme, short fiction, activities, hands-on projects, interviews and more. For a list of monthly themes go to KNOW Writers’ Guidelines.

At this time the editors are not accepting queries or unsolicited non-fiction articles. If, however, you have experience writing for children, particularly children ages six to nine, you are invited to contact the editor and may also forward some samples of your published work.

The editors are interested in receiving theme-related short fiction or poetry.
