Opportunity: Cadet Quest Magazine – Get published and earn money

Cadet Quest is a Christian-oriented magazine for boys aged 9-14. They publish themed fiction, nonfiction, project/hobby articles, cartoons and puzzles, and illustrations. For fiction they want, fast-moving, entertaining stories that appeal to a boy’s sense of adventure. Humor is welcomed. Stories must present Christian life realistically and help boys relate Christian values to their own lives. Stories must have action without long dialogue. Favorite topics for boys include sports and athletes, humor, adventure, mystery, friends, etc. They should fit the theme of that issue of Cadet Quest (see list at the bottom of post). Stories with preachiness and/or cliches are not of interest to them. Fiction and non-fiction selections will be made at least three months prior to publication date. Below are the guidelines for each issue.

Deadlines: Selections started in May 2020; they’ll be made no later than three months prior to publication date. The above dates/months given with the themes are issue dates, not deadlines.
Length: 1,000-1,300 words for fiction, up to 1,500 words for nonfiction
Pay: $0.05/word for fiction and nonfiction (see guidelines)

Talk tomorrow,



  1. Thanks, Kathy!
