We are looking for great imaginative contributors.

Updated: Nov 6, 2017

We are looking for great imaginative contributors for our new creative kids magazine. This can be stories, poetry, comics, book reviews and ideas by teachers, children's, authors, illustrators, educators and other creative talent. Get your kids involved.

Issue two is about HOMES AROUND THE WORLD but we are open to all story ideas. Here are some ideas.

What is it like to live in another country? How different is your home compared to where you were born? Do you have two homes? One you visit only at the weekends or during holidays? Do you have friends all around the world?

Little Buffalo magazine is a new children’s magazine for learning English through creativity.

Aimed at 5+, our newly formed magazine takes an imaginative approach to teaching, focusing on creative techniques to stimulate learning and with an emphasis on cultural and ethical exploration.
