I recently received a letter from Fun For Kidz requesting 'perpetual, non-exclusive reprint rights' for my material published w/them.  The letter states they'll compensate $50 for each time they re-print it.

I have a rebus story with Hopscotch for Girls and I was happy to let them re-publish it if the opportunity arises.

Anyone else?

I got the same email about 2 or 3 weeks ago. . . .I've had two NF articles published with them in 2013 and 2016. I wouldn't mind getting a little bit more for them! :-)

I've had several of my puzzles reprinted with them over the years. The first time, they paid me nothing for the reprint. After that, when they asked for permission to reprint, I always said in my response that I assumed they would be paying me.  They have paid ever since, so I think that first time was just an oversight on their part.

The folks at Fun for Kidz are really nice people and I've appreciated getting to work with them.

Yes, I've had them reprint some of my things, and the pay was not as high as $50 so I signed up.

Thank you so much for posting about the letter!   I had not received this letter then I recalled I used an old email address for my correspondence with Fun For Kidz and it has been quite awhile since we've corresponded. I searched my old email and saw that I received the letter as well.   

Thanks so much!
Sue

Thanks for sharing the new themes. I was just wondering when is the deadline for each theme? Is it the month written next to it, or three months before that?
Sorry if this is a stupid question. and thanks for answering anyway. :)

Marie-  the month next to it is when they are printing that theme, so you would need to get it there at least a month or two before.

Thanks, Cindyb. This is very helpful and will help planning if I decide to submit anything

Marie - I would add that if you have a piece that might be a good fit for one of their themes, don't delay. They do fill up.   :goodluck
