Many times! My very first time being published was at 15 years old. I wrote a poem "The Monster" and it was published in an inspirational book! I still have the book too.
I'm going to school for writing, so I've been published most just the past 3 years. It's been a good while since I've had something accepted though, but am currently looking for a market for a thriller story I wrote. I've been published mostly with my informational articles (some with Deseret), two memoirs and the rest are thriller short-stories. TKNC published me once and the editor and I remain friendly with each other occasionally.
