Deadline: June 30, 2017
Ladybug (for ages 3-6), is looking for fiction, retellings of folktales, creative nonfiction, poems, action rhymes, and proposals for short comics about our scaly, feathered, and furry friends. Send us your lively writing about wild creatures, pets, and animals seen only in your imagination.
Our readers like simple yet strong plots, memorable characters, and humor. We prefer short work for young children (stories may be up to 800 words, poetry up to 20 lines).
If submitting a retelling of a folktale or nonfiction, please include a list of sources and your credentials with your manuscript.
