Our Writers

Our philosophy of providing an advertisement free zone for children means that the magazine does not generate any income. It is free for all children to read.

The fantastic work of a huge number of incredibly talented writers, from all walks of life, enable us to create this resource for children. We are very grateful to them.

If you would like to contribute, please get in touch.


To help with the costs of running the site, we have published a range of books aimed at children from 8 to 12 year, both fiction and non-fiction.
