Root and Star: Circles

June 17, 2019
Root and Star: Circles
 
Root & Star magazine strives to bring quality art and literature to children in the ephemeral magazine form. It hopes to inspire and be inspired by the whole child – the wise, the wild, the strange, and the sweet. It is a place for creative people to play and to share the complexities of their work and spirit with children. We are looking to build a beautiful, meaningful magazine for children and for the people who read this magazine to them. We are looking for gorgeous, artful imagery that is not quaint and does not even necessarily seem to be geared specifically toward children on first glance. We are looking for writing that is kind, strange, powerful, exquisite, and sacred. (By sacred we do not mean religious, for we do not plan to reference any holiday or spiritual figure. We mean instead the sanctity of the everyday.)
 
Issue 24 November/December 2019: CIRCLES (deadline July 31, 2019)
 
Contributors will receive two copies of the issue in which their work appears. We hope to pay more when funding permits, but in the meantime we hope contributors can see the value of a wide readership with distribution in Whole Foods and Barnes & Noble, as well as the chance to connect to a great group of people.
