For Children's Writers

For our children’s writers:

OCCBW presents the tenth Oregon Coast Children's Book Writers Workshop, July 9-13, in the exquisite Oregon coast town of Oceanside. For more information visit

Knowonder is an online children’s magazine dedicated to providing a story a day to develop a child’s love of reading. They are currently restructuring to make their site better and more accessible. The newly designed site should launch June 1st, but they are looking for story submissions now. Visit their website to see what they are looking for and as always follow their submission guidelines.

There is a wonderful online resource for children’s writers. Verla Kay’s message boards (known by the users as the blueboards) is a free site for children’s writers and illustrators. The users discuss everything there is to discuss about craft, publishing opportunities, resources, different genres, even share response times from submissions. It is a wealth of information and a caring, supportive environment. Sign up here.
