Our Latest Issue: September-October 2019!

If you read New Moon Girls magazine, the newest issue, for September-October 2019, should be arriving (if it hasn't already) within the next week or so!

The theme of this magazine issue is "It's Your Thing!"—so, it features lots of amazing girls, women, and people who are being themselves, doing what they love, and following their passions. Whether you're in the mood for DIY Halloween costume ideas, being a ninja warrior, or dance activism, this issue has it. Or read about an inspiring park ranger, an author interview about the Salem witch trials, or the life of a girl in Italy. Also included between those pages are bubble magic, pimple advice, a friend-seeking skunk... and, of course, much more. You'll have to read it to find out. ;)

For everyone who reads NMG magazine: What do you think about the September-October issue (and about the magazine in general)? What's your favorite part of this issue? Least favorite? What would you like to see in future issues? Share your feedback with us through the "Our Latest Issue" poll—and discuss in the comments below!

Have at it, and enjoy. :D

        Not necessarily! When you'll get the magazine depends on where you live, what happens in the post office, etc.—some people always get it sooner than others. Mine just came yesterday, and I'm sure many others are still on the way to their destinations. As long as your subscription hasn't expired, I wouldn't worry about it for at least another week or so. :)

Sleeping Over at a Friend's House

When I get invited to sleepover parties, I always end up wanting to go home before bed. Now that I am a rising 8th grader, I am starting to worry that my friends may find it babyish that I can't spend the night.

Would I be able to just use a wad of toilet paper instead of a pad for a day until I get home and can ask my mom for one? Where would I keep pads after I did get my period if I had it at school? I just feel uninformed and unprepared and…

Redesigning Characters

"Do you have any advice on redesigning characters? I have an old one I want to polish up and I'm not sure how to go about it." -Willa While I don’t have a lot of experience redesigning characters visually, I have a bit more experience with reworking characters that I’ve created in pieces of writing. After thinking about your question a little, I think that both crafts tend to come down to the same core pieces, so hopefully my advice will help you out whether you’re looking to work on visual…

Too Much To Do

“Yesterday I felt overwhelmed because I had more to do than I was used to (Lots of homework, after school activities and dinner). Do you have any tips for girls to feel less overwhelmed when they have a lot to do?”  - Anonymous Feeling overwhelmed by long to-do lists is a very common experience, especially as we get older and start taking on more responsibilities and commitments, have more time-consuming homework, etc.—so you are far from alone in this. (It’s certainly something I’ve had to…
