ASK Magazine 2013 content themes chosen

Posted on April 26, 2012


ASK is a nonfiction magazine for children 6-9 years old who are curious about science and the world they live in. Each edition is built around a central theme on some question or concept in the natural, physical, or social sciences, technology, mathematics, history, or the arts. Articles should read as engaging nonfiction, not like school textbook or encyclopedia material. ASK welcomes queries for articles for upcoming themes which are listed on the Submissions Guidelines webpage. ASK also has a blog where writers can find more specific calls for submissions. Remember, magazines usually select content 6-8 months in advance.

All articles are commissioned. Feature articles are usually 1200-1600 words, with sidebars. ASK also occasionally commissions photo essays (400-600 words), humor pieces (200-400 words), short profiles of people, inventions, events, or the arts (200-400 words).

The magazine’s 2013 themes are now posted at Ask Authors’ Page
