Cricket Magazine: Escapes and Rescues

May 16, 2018
Cricket Magazine: Escapes and Rescues
 
Theme: Escapes and Rescues
Deadline: June 15, 2018
 
Cricket (for ages 9-14) seeks science fiction and fantasy, contemporary and historical fiction, and true adventure on the theme of escapes and rescues. Fictional stories should feature protagonists in the age range of our readers who rely on their own pluck and ingenuity to escape a danger or rescue someone from a difficult situation. In contemporary stories, the danger might be more social than physical—such as avoiding an embarrassing situation, an unwelcome obligation, or divulging a secret. True adventures should be well researched and include a list of sources. Stories can also feature heroic animals or pets.
 
Stories and articles: up to 25¢ per word
Poems: up to $3.00 per line; $25.00 minimum
Activities and recipes: $75.00 flat rate
