It costs money to access Wooden Horse Publishing’s Magazine Database (which for some is a good investment). However, by simply scrolling down the list of updated entries, it’s possible to find plenty of good info on new magazines, which a writer can then use as a launching pad for further exploration.
For instance, I just found eight (!) new magazines for kids, ranging from preschool through late teens.
Check it out here:

Thanks Wren!!!
Which brings me to a question I have been meaning to ask...
Can we sub something that has been rejected by Highlights to High Five? (something that has been rejected in the last 6 months?) I was told something I subbed to Highlights was "too young" for them. Any thoughts?

Thanks! 

I've been getting their free email newsletter for a long time - so that may be an alternative to the $$ubscription

Thanks, Wren!

KW: If you subbed within the last year, and Highlights rejected it, I assume that it was also considered for High Five.  Want to shoot for Babybug or Ladybug?

With news of magazines folding, I thought I'd bump this thread up the line.

I've been looking for a magazine at the middle grade level that might be interested in ghost stories. Anybody know of anything like that?

On-line, The Story Station.  They are a paying market.  Small, but it is something.

Have you checked out KidVisions (another online possibility)?  It doesn't pay much, but at least something.

Thanks for posting about wooden horse. I just found another Canadian children's magazine I didn't know about... and just spoke with the editor. YAY. Super nice lady. My sample copies are on their way - and I'm going to send her my resume ASAP.
