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.
Issue contents have been assigned through 2019. We have not yet set issue themes for 2020 but we are still accepting a limited number of manuscripts that we find irresistible.
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.
