Story Station is a part of viatouch.com which is a website of resources for teachers and parents. An American market, they pay 1c per world for short stories for children and young adults of between 1,500 to 3,000 words. Full submission guidelines can be found here, but basically they are looking for quality short stories with strong plot lines, a child protagonist or child character (not necessarily the viewpoint character) and an upbeat ending. If you read a few of the stories on there you will see that there is some quirky, original stuff as well as classic adventures but avoid the nastier end of horror. I was impressed by the quality. Maybe you can do just as well? Email submissions are preferred and they aim to respond within a month.
