Kid Submissions (12 and under)
Mighty Kind is looking for kids who love to draw, write, and share their thoughts. What does nature look like where you live? Show us with a drawing, collage, painting, or artwork in any medium for a chance to be featured in our “Air Mail” gallery.*
We’re also curious, what do YOU do to show kindness to Nature? We’ll publish a few of your ideas and comments in the next issue. Who knows who you might inspire!*
*Due to the potential volume of submissions, we may not be able to include them all (but we’ll try to include as many as we can!)

Content Submissions (Writers, Illustrators)
In this upcoming issue, we’re thinking about all things Nature. What can nature teach us about kindness? How do different cultures relate to Earth/Nature? How can we show kindness in and around nature? What examples of kindness do we find in Nature? We’d love to explore these questions and more!
We’re especially interested in:
- Articles on the intersection of Nature and Kindness
- Activity/Craft ideas that inspire “Wonder” in Nature.
- Fictional short stories, suitable for young readers ages 6+
- Poetry (on the theme of Wonder)
- Illustration / Comics
- Expert Advice (for the grown-up section)
- Personal Essay (for the grown-up section)
Please use our online form to submit your pitch/draft/or illustration concept by November 4, 2019, 12 pm PST. 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.
If your submission is accepted, we will be in touch with an offer and payment rate to publish your work. 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 or follow us on social media @mightykindkids!
