Kiki is both a fashion magazine and a creativity journal for “tween” girls who are 8-14 years old. We are interested only in articles that help expand our readers’ creative horizons in a wide range of topical areas, including how-to crafts, sewing projects, illustration techniques, sewing techniques, design ideas, business, geography, interviews with people in the industry (particularly students and young people starting their careers), book reviews, product reviews, travel, grooming tips, games, puzzles, and content-related quizzes. We do not accept articles on sexual topics, puberty, relationships with boys, or other socially oriented content. Because our target market is girls ages 9 to 13, we are not interested in articles directly about college life. Interviews with college design students are acceptable, however. Pay rate depends on the length of the piece. Pieces can be anywhere from 250 words to 750 words with inset articles of 150 words. The pay rate ranges from .50 to $1.00/word.
