St. Nicholas Magazine published by Homeschooling Teen

St. Nicholas Magazine was recommended to me by the head of our local homeschool group. She orders it for her own children and says that they always fight over who gets to read it first!

On the website, editor-in-chief Fiona Clare Altschuler shares:

When I first thought of creating a magazine, I was inspired by a real monthly for kids from the turn of the century. Some of the authors featured in the original St. Nicholas were Louisa May Alcott, Frances Hodgeson Burnett, and Alfred Lord Tennyson. There were also stories, poems, art, book reviews, and special assignment entries by kids. I have about twenty vintage “numbers” (that’s what they called issues), the earliest from 1880 and the latest from 1927! They are really fun and interesting.

My revived version will be published quarterly. I accept stories, poems, art, and book reviews from kids of all ages! Also included in the magazine will be pieces originally from the old St. Nicholas; It will be so interesting to see how kids wrote over a hundred years ago!There will also be a quarterly assignment, which you will find at the end of each magazine. In each number, there will be an assignment for prose, poetry, artwork, and photography. These assignments are optional, though: you don’t need to do all of them, or even any of them!

I’m really looking forward to see your work, and I’m so excited about this magazine! Thank you!

The magazine also accepts submissions from young artists and writers.
