CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS - ISSUE 3: Breaking Bread
Calling all illustrators, writers, artists, and thinkers of any age and experience — Mighty Kind is on the lookout for submissions for Issue 3: Breaking Bread. Read below for dates, specifications, and more. Questions? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kid Submissions (12 and under)
We’re looking for kids who love to draw, write, and be creative. In every issue of Mighty Kind, we feature children’s artwork, and we want you to participate. We are currently accepting artwork in any medium showing KINDNESS AROUND THE TABLE!
Draw us a picture of your favorite food or what a meal looks like in your home. If writing is more your thing, you can write a poem about someone who you like cooking with, tell us about your favorite family recipe, tell us your story of kindness around the table, or share something else that you dream up. We love to see what you come up with!
Please use the link below to upload high-resolution scans or photos of the finished piece along with your little artist's first name and age by March 31, 2020. Submissions sent after the due date will not be accepted.
*Because of the volume of submissions, we may not be able to include all submissions sent to us.

Content Submissions (Writers, Illustrators)
We welcome submissions from teachers, mentors, parents, caregivers, artists, illustrators, and writers. If you have an idea for the upcoming issue BREAKING BREAD please submit it. We’re specifically looking for stories and articles suitable for readers 6-11 that focus on the topics of food security, awareness around food differences (veganism, vegetarianism, food allergies, cultural sensitivities, or other dietary restrictions), sharing what we have, and activities that promote kindness around the table. Submissions—in draft form—are due March 27, 2020. Please include your name, your draft, and your contact info. We’ll review all submissions and aim to get back to you within a week.
March 27, 2020
Please use our online form to submit your pitch/draft/or illustration concept by March 27, 2020. Include a paragraph summarizing your idea, why you’re the person who should write/illustrate it, and a few examples of similar work, if relevant. Anyone over the age of 12 is welcome to submit.
Please use our submissions form only. We do not consider work submitted through Mighty Kind’s social media or other email accounts. If you feel your submission falls in both written and illustrated categories, please just pick one category and explain on the entry form.
We’re a small (but mighty!) editorial staff, so while we try to respond to all submissions, we’re not always able to do so personally or immediately. We aim to send replies within two months of receiving a submission.
Thanks for considering submitting your work to Mighty Kind. To keep up on Calls for Submission, sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of the page or follow us on social media @mightykindkids!
