FAQs

inspiring young girl reading magazine

 

Who is Kookie for?
Kookie is created for (and by) pre-teen girls from around 7-ish to 12-ish, but anyone can read it! Reading about girls in challenging, creative and leading roles is good for everyone.

Can boys read Kookie?
Of course, they can (and do)!

How do I get a copy?
You can subscribe or buy a back issue here.

Where do you ship Kookie to?
Anywhere in the world.

Can I contribute to Kookie?
Absolutely! We LOVE to hear from readers. This is a girl-powered magazine after all. If you’re a pre-teen girl (or know one) who likes to write, draw or take photographs, or if you think you have something special to say – about absolutely anything – get in touch! Find out more about submitting to Kookie here.

Where’s the advertising?
There isn’t any and never will be. Just 56 pages of fantastic content and no ads at all.

Why a print magazine?
Because, like us, tweens still love to read magazines (hooray!).

Despite the ever-increasing use of technology, younger kids still prefer to flick through the colourful pages of a print magazine than read from the internet. That’s because tweens engage with magazines in a very tactile way – writing and drawing on the pages, colouring in the pictures, filling in the quizzes and entering the competitions.

Offering a sense of ownership, escapism and camaraderie, magazines are a ‘slow media’ that can be read anywhere, at any time (without a charger in sight).

(Plus nothing beats getting your very own magazine through the post!)

Why you don’t have free gifts on the cover?
We’ve made a conscious decision not to add to the tide of plastic in the world. We have free posters and pull-outs with every issue, but we’re proudly plastic-free.

Can I be a Kookie cover girl?
We’re always looking for new faces for our covers (but remember, we only have four a year). Email us — you never know!

When’s the next issue coming out?
Kookie is quarterly, so we publish in March, June, September and December.
