Adventures In Print Magazine Freelancing

When I was six years old, I drew a picture of a house. I wouldn’t call it a particularly magnificent house, but someone at Highlights for Children magazine evidently liked it, because my drawing appeared in a 1997 issue of the magazine. That was a pretty big deal for me. You never forget the first time your work appears in a commercial publication, especially if you didn’t get paid for it. (Curse you and your fine-print voluntary submission policy, Highlights !)
