diverse girls together on top of the earth

Dear New Moon Girl – yes, that’s you!

You are AWESOME.  I’m amazed every day by the way you go out in the world and be you. You’re a courageous girl who brings your whole self – your feelings and your thoughts and your body and your spirit – to everything you do.

That’s why you inspire me. I love seeing you and your perspective on the world in our magazine.

Who is Luna?

You mean so much to me because I’m the spirit of NMG.  And I’ve been around since NMG began in 1992. I love to be here for every girl who needs someone to listen. You can write to me about anything at Dear Luna.

Lucky me, you share what you love, who inspires you, and the creative heights of your imagination!!

Get Involved With NMG

Contribute your stories, poems, opinions, art and photos to NMG.  Make drawings and paintings and digital art of Luna Tics (yep, they’re named for me!) and for my Art Gallery online and in the magazine.

Tell us about yourself in Meet A Member. Share your adventures in Go Girl. Ask other members for advice on confusing, difficult, and embarrassing stuff in Ask A Girl. And give supportive advice to each other there, too.

Give your honest opinions in polls and surveys about important issues. You show respect and have compassion even for people you disagree with. You listen to them and think things through and are willing to consider changing your mind.

Feelings and Thoughts Are Important to Me

Your feelings are powerful and help keep you in touch with your inner self. You hate injustice and do what you can to make the world better for everyone. You stand together in sisterhood with those who are not treated fairly.

You like to learn the stories of women and girls from the past and present and from all over the world. Women and girls have been left out of history, textbooks, movies, games, politics, business, science, arts, awards, activism, and too, too many other places.

Our Mission for New Moon Girls

We invented NMG to give you and all girls this place to connect with other, to share your creativity, and to hear the stories of women and girls told by the girls and women themselves. You make this happen every time you contribute your creations to NMG. Then everyone can see how valuable it is to Listen To Girls!

Thank you for being part of our community of girls, parents, and allies. We’re all supporting each other, and building an equal world for all!

Love, Luna

  1. Is New moon 100% online now? Or is there still a print magazine to subscribe to?

    1. Hi Amanda – yes, New Moon is 100% digital now. We had to make the change last summer because of relentless increases in costs of printing and mailing we’ve been trying to absorb for the past six years. We switched to 100% digital so we can keep filling the need girls ages 8 to 14 have for girl-respecting, girl-expressing media, with NO ads, ever.
      We give two ways you can try our digital options out. First, you can download a free pdf of a past issue here so you can see how awesome our girl-created content is.
      Second you can get a 2 week free trial of our magazine app here which gives you flexibility and confidence. With our app you can see the safety, privacy and flexibility of the app you can use on computer, tablet or mobile.

  2. Hi! I was a member of the GOC, and in the magazine it said to come here for something similar. Does that mean that the GOC is back in some form? I really hope it is.

    1. Hi KitKate – What we have for you now is a digital app at read.newmoongirls.com -it’s different from the GOC. It is a private app that you can load on a computer, a tablet or a smartphone. We recommend using either tablet or computer/chromebook for the best reading experience. We are exploring ways to add a commenting feature for subscribers but haven’t found a secure way to do this yet. Keeping the comments secure is very important for all our members and is an abosolute must for the staff. Do give the app a free try for 2 weeks and see what it is. We love hearing from you!

  3. Hi, I just heard about this website in a book, and I think it is really cool so far!
