My kids 10 year old cousin is visiting and he was just telling me about about a magazine that his teachers use and school and he said is was "so cool". And that from a 10 year about reading a magazine.

The magazine is Time For Kids and it looks like it is related to the TIME magazine.

Is anyone familiar with it? Subbed to it? I can't find any guidelines but I sure would like to.

It has a listing in my Magazine Markets for Children's Writers 2013. Among other things it says:

-4% written by non staff writers
-Editorial calendar available at website (www.timeforkids.com)
-All work is assigned
-Send resume only

Hope that's helpful!

I've used Time for Kids in the past with my class. It's similar to the Weekly Reader I use with my kindergarten class.  Weekly Reader/Let's Find Out is now published through Scholastic. They are both small weekly magazines containing a few pages based on current events and seasonal themes. They do not appear to be the kinds of magazines that would accept much nonstaff writing, if any.  They are great resources though and the kids love them!
