From Our Readers

Dear TIME for Kids,

I really enjoy reading your articles. How do you know what you want to write about? I’m studying journalism at school, and sometimes I have trouble thinking of what I should write about. Thank you.


Caroline B., 10, Brooklyn, NY


Great question, Caroline! Selecting stories is a very important part of our job. On Monday mornings, we have a team meeting at which our writers and editors pitch ideas. We look for topics that our readers should or might want to know about. We work hard to get a variety of topics in every issue. We also consider photographs: Is there something interesting to show? Send your ideas to us at We love inspiration!
