Contribute to a preteen online magazine for girls - fluff-free and Bieberless

Jump! Mag is a preteen online magazine for girls.

We have been up and running for almost a year now, and have had some great contributions. Jump! Mag is totally non-profit, and is being run by myself in my free time mainly in PJs with the fantastic contributions of a range of great writers.

We love to receive articles from preteens or teens in our #writtenbyyou section. You don't have to be a writer, or a blogger to contribute. If you have a fun or interesting hobby or career - we would love to feature you.

Our idea is to give girls an alternative to the typical girls magazines and comics and was born on Mumsnet, with the support and help of many many MNetters.

PM me or contact me via Jump! Mag to contribute. Thanks.

Would you be interested in any aspie related things for this? I'm not sure of the viewpoint you'd be looking for, but was thinking some of my school experiences might be useful to readers.

Peeky
Yes, definitely. We have done a few articles about kids with SN, and about adults who have overcome their SN to go to college such as Lauren who is studying to be a vet.

Just a wee bump cause I am getting low on contributions here is the info again

Have you considered asking student journalists still at uni to contribute?

As a student journalist they're looking for the experience of writing and getting a byline rather than being paid.

It might be worth sending an email to the journalism departments at some universities.

My DS goes to Southampton Solent and there's a really good journalism department there.

Hope that helps.

I've sent a link to the mag to my DD who's 14 and has lots to say on lots of things. And I've asked her to send the link to a friend of hers who is a talented writer who also has a lot to say for herself.

Thanks, Borninastorm. That is a great idea. Will do that now.

I read your post about your DD's first concert - it was lovely.
