About Cadet Quest Magazine
Cadet Quest is a Christian magazine for boys ages 9-14 published by the Calvinist Cadet Corps. It is designed to show boys how God is working in their lives and in the world around them using seven theme-driven issues every year.
To assemble these magazines, we need content. Do you like to write? Can you write well? Consider sending us your articles and stories. If you have friends who are writers, please let them know about this opportunity.
What are we looking for?
While we’re looking for all sorts of content, we’re primarily interested in fiction and non-fiction material that is Christian-oriented without being too moralizing. We want wholesome, age-appropriate stories that will appeal to active, imaginative boys.
We’re not just looking for longer stories and articles, though – we’re also in need of jokes, puzzles, projects, and news stories that feature Cadets. If you or your cadets want to contribute, we want to hear from you!
