Highlights Hello is a magazine for loving adults to share with infants and toddlers ages 0-2. The majority of our subscribers are ages 1-2. Texts must be developmentally appropriate for the child yet fun for the read-aloud adult as well. We love simple humor, wordplay, or a gentle surprise on a level the toddler can grasp.

Hello manuscripts occasionally go up to 50 words, but we strongly prefer shorter texts for our very young audience. We like to average about 2 to 3 short lines of text per page.

Now in its fifth year, Highlights Hello is sporting a new, updated look as of the May 2017 issue. Texts are accompanied by more colorful graphics, photos, and mixed media. Before submitting, writers may find it helpful to examine recent sample issues.

We accept only text through Submittable. Please do NOT send art samples.

Please note that if we decline a submission, we delete your manuscript file. You can be assured that we never keep copies of creative work that we have not purchased.
