For nearly 20 years, Cricket Media was happy and excited to share CICADA with you and your teenage reader. We were proud to introduce your child to the world of literature, poetry, and other talented teens with our award-winning magazine and its devoted community in The Slam.


Eventually, we made the decision to end publication of CICADA. However, we continue to offer back issues of this terrific literary magazine, so your curious kid can still enjoy fascinating stories, interviews, and more.
