Legacy Kids Submission Guidelines

THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN EMBRACING A CREATIVE COMMUNITY FOR YOUR MILITARY CHILD. WE ARE EXCITED TO FEATURE BRIGHT AND ENERGIZING CONTENT IN PRINT AND ONLINE FOR LEGACY KIDS MAGAZINE.

Framework
Below you will find different creative elements that you can use as inspiration for your submission to Legacy Kids Magazine, which will release tentatively in the summer of 2021.

VOLUME II THEME
We are thrilled to announce that submissions for Volume II of Legacy Kids are now open!

This edition will be focused on adventure and exploration! We know that military kids have changed their locations around the United States AND around the World.  We have seen that movement leads to new journeys and creates some of the best tales. Let’s travel into the road map of our minds and create through writing, imagination, and design.

Do you have a story about your favorite adventure?

Have you ever taken a risk – and were rewarded with a prize, like the gold at the end of a rainbow?
 
Have you ever been stationed overseas? What was it like? Can you teach us about that place? What about the friends you made, the customs you saw, or the languages that were spoken?
 
Teach us about the duty stations within the United States! Can you report on the area, the best things to do, the things you should avoid, and the most interesting places you saw and experienced?

Can you create a fictional story about adventure and exploration?
 
What advice would you give to other military kids about moving? How have your challenges turned into blessings?
 
Remember to think outside the box. We want military kids to get lost in adventure in Volume II.

Submissions for review can include but are not limited to personal narratives, short fictional stories, poetry, comics, illustrations, watercolor, oil paintings, calligraphy, and photography. Submissions can include military children and adults alike – with the focus directed toward military children and their experiences with the places they have lived. Please send submissions to submissions@legacymagazine.org.

Photographers
Interviews - If you're photographing one of the magazines interviewees, please review the synopsis of their interview before the start of the shoot. This will help provide a general framework. Each layout generally features 3-8 visuals.

Portraits - Please include images that capture the personality of the individual and the progression of the interview. 

Detail Shots - Please include a few images from the session that capture the environment and details without the model in the frame (i.e., books, workspace, scenery, location, home, coffee shop, farmers market, etc.)

Attire - The volume is scheduled to release in the summer, so please have the model or child dress appropriately, in bright, vibrant colors or colors that are complimentary of the theme colors.
Please email proposals to submissions@legacymagazine.org by May 30, 2020.
Please note that submissions are done on a voluntary basis. The publishing process can be complex when selecting content. If your work does not get chosen, it is due to limited space throughout the magazine, and we are thankful for you for sharing your story and ideas.
