Spider & Cricket: Folktales, Myths, & Legends

March 26, 2017
Spider and Cricket Magazines: Folktales, Myths, and Legends
 
SPIDER, a literary magazine for children, features fresh and engaging literature, poems, articles, and activities for newly independent readers. Editors seek energetic, beautifully crafted submissions with strong “kid appeal” (an elusive yet recognizable quality, often tied to high-interest elements such as humor, adventure, and suspense).
 
We have particular interests in stories that explore themes of identity (gender, race and ethnicity, neighborhoods, beliefs and traditions); citizenship and global cultures; scientific and technological exploration; and the creative spirit.
 
Call for Submissions: Folktales, Myths, and Legends
Deadline: April 27, 2017
 
CRICKET (for ages 9-14) and SPIDER (ages 6-9) are looking for retellings of folktales, myths, and legends from around the world. We seek tales of humorous tricksters, of adventurous heroes on epic quests, of Clever and strong women, lovable fools, and formidable demons, as well as traditional wisdom tales and creation myths. Retellings should be lively and dramatic, with an authentic voice that engages the imaginations of our young readers. They must also be well researched, accurately reflecting the meanings and traditions of the story’s cultural background. Please include a list of sources and your credentials with your submission.
