New Moon magazineI just received an e-mail from a founder of New Moon Girls, which, since the early 1990s, has published a wonderful, girl-edited, advertising-free  magazine for girls ages 8-14. The magazine is now in financial trouble and may close at the end of this year.

I would like to invite my visitors to contribute or subscribe to New Moon Girls magazine and help keep its doors open.

Unlike most magazines for girls, this one has no diet advice, no fashion features, and no advertising.  It’s a  full-color, fun magazine edited by a group of girls in Duluth, Minnesota, with the help of an adult staff. The most recent issue features: an article about an Iraqi girl who, at the age of 17, started that country’s first National Youth Orchestra; world records set by women; hidden pictures; an interview with author Madeleine L’Engle; a science project about cloning; an advice column with questions and answers from girls; and opinions, art, and fiction by girls.
