Sad News about Sprouts

All good things come to an end. 

I am sorry to say that National SCBWI will not allow us to continue the magazine, unless we can offer it for free to everyone.  Since that is not possible, we must cease publication.

Kathy Temean will continue to post articles on her blog from time to time, if they are submitted.

I would like to thank Kathy and Laurie Wallmark for their help, the authors, editors and agents who contributed the insightful content, and Leeza Hernandez and the illustrators who made Sprouts so beautiful.

I will miss editing it.

Here is a copy of the cover for the last issue:


  1. Sprouts is something you should be VERY proud of, Anita, and it’s so sad it has to come to an end. One good thing is it should give you lots more time for your OWN writing 🙂

    • Thanks Donna, I will miss it, but I’m happy for the increased time. And thanks to you for writing articles for Sprouts!

      • It was always my pleasure and honor, Anita 🙂

  2. I’m sorry to hear your news, too, Anita, but what Donna said! I hope you can fill that time spent with lots more of your own writing.

    • Thank you Amy. I’m looking forward to spending more time writing.
