While we’re all about the speculative fiction here at Horror Tree but as we’re here to help grow your writing career – we need to help you find other markets as well! We’re back with another article for those of you who have kids or love to write for them. Yes, we’ve got some kid-friendly markets here for anyone that has a story to pen for the younger generation.

Some of these even include speculative fiction themed submissions so be sure to keep your eyes out!

Let us know if these type of posts are a help and you’d like more of them in the comments below or on social media.

Thanks!

Ember

Payment: 2¢ per word or $20 per work, whichever is more.
Note: Readers aged 10 to 18

What They Want:“Ember is looking for great writing that tells a compelling story, regardless of length. Even very short pieces, like flash fiction, should tell a story, though there will certainly be fewer dramatic elements developed than we’d see in a longer piece or novel. The presence of “story” is what distinguishes flash fiction from “vignette.””

What They Want:“Articles and stories are planned up to a year in advance. A selection of fiction is made each summer, the themes for the coming year are posted on the website in September, and most non-fiction is commissioned by the end of November for the following year.”
