What does the word "normal" mean to you as a military kid?
How do you feel different from other kids your age?
What struggles do you face being a military child?
What is something you want other people to know that they may not realize when they first meet you?
Share a funny story that happened to your family!
Write a letter to a younger version of yourself.
Write a letter to your mom and dad.
Give advice for other kids struggling with their parents being away.

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.
