Online Children’s Magazine Releases New Look
Kid’s Imagination Train now features a page turning design. The format allows KIT to offer a paperless publication with the appearance of a magazine.
Aug. 8, 2014 - LEXINGTON, Ky. -- The online children's magazine, Kid’s Imagination Train, continues to grow since its inaugural January 2013 issue. Randi Lynn Mrvos, editor of KIT, first published the magazine as a blog before turning it into a website and adding the new flipbook feature.
Mrvos, an accomplished writer and editor says, "I'm dedicated to supporting authors and writers by publishing both new and established writers." Furthermore, Mrvos believes children should have a place to go where they can enjoy reading and exercising their imaginations. According to Mrvos, "KIT is unique in that it helps children to read and learn, engaging them by providing the opportunity to illustrate their favorite stories."
KIT pays contributors and is open to submissions. Mrvos also introduced the first annual KIT writing contest. The contest theme is Holiday Stories. Children 7 to 12 are eligible to submit a story. In addition to working on KIT, Mrvos dispenses editorial advice and information about children's writing on her blog Children’s Writer’s World (http://childrenswritersworld.blogspot.com#163070713611172...).
