Writing for Publication?

There's no thrill quite like holding the printed copy of your published work.  I've written for online publications before, but always found the print editions more exciting.  Until now.

Recently I was approached by a representative of KidsHealth.org, a website devoted to educating kids and parents about health and nutrition in fun ways.  Fun ways--like candy experiments.

After a freelance writer for KidsHealth mentioned candy experiments in an article about Halloween candy, I was asked if I would be willing to let KidsHealth.org use some of my candy experiments.  Since I had researched and enjoyed KidsHealth previously (they have this great candy-eating pumpkin game), I was definitely interested.

Soon, candy experiments will join the other experiments, games, and activities on KidsHealth.org.  Which teaches health and nutrition to 140 million visitors a year.

Now that's exciting.
