SPROUTS MAGAZINE – For Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators

I can’t help myself, I have to show off the next issue of Sprouts Magazine.  It seems like each issue gets better and better.  Anita Nolan, Leeza Hernandez, Laurie Wallmark and myself make up the “Sprouts Team,” but we rely on the expertise industry professionals and members provide content for each issue.  We always have articles written by editors and or agents, author interviews, “how to” articles written by experts in their area and we show off the talented illustrators who subscribe to Sprouts

You should consider subscribing.  We put out a very high quality 28 page, full color magazine, which you will want to keep on your bookshelf.  Even though we do not pay for articles, but we do show off you, your writing and or illustrating to over 60 editors and agents with each issue – and that doesn’t include all the other subscribers reading the issue.  It is a great way to get your name seen and a wonderful way to help market yourself.  If you want to subscribe, click here for the subscription form.

Hope I gave you a flavor of what Sprouts is like.

  1. Kathy, I’ve been subscribing since you started putting it out and, if there was a day that had no smiles in it, this just has to arrive in the mail and one broad smile is guaranteed! Thanks for all the work the four of you put into a truly outstanding publication 🙂

  2. Hi Kathy,
    Your magazine looks absolutely wonderful. I’m a member of SCBWI France and would like to know how much a subscription would be for me considering the extra postage. (Can we pay with a credit card?)
    Thanks,

      Very cool! I don’t know the answer to that, but I will work on getting one for you. I’ll be back in touch. Oh, I love knowing I am having someone from France visit my blog. Hope you will come back.

      Talk soon,

      Kathy

    • Dana,

      I checked with the post office and we could mail the three issues to you in France by adding $10 to the subscription. If you e-mail me at kathy@newjerseyscbwi.com, I will give you my personal e-mail that you could use at Paypal to pay for the magazine using your credit card. I will just take it from my account and transfer it into the SCBWI account. I hope you decide to sign up, it would be so exciting to have a reader in France.

      • Hi Kathy,
        Yes I did. Thank you. I’m in the process of paying through PayPal. I hadn’t used it for awhile so I had to wait a few days while they verified my card. I’ll email my address after I pay.
        Thanks again!

        I received your payment and we will be sending them out in the next ten days. I let you know when we mail it and then you can let me know when you receive it. It will be interesting to know how long it take to get in your hands. We now can say we are an International magazine.

        Thanks,

        Kathy
