1. Have a peek at our guidelines:

What to avoid

  • Already-published stories: we prefer original work, but if you want to submit something that’s already been published feel free to!
  • Clickbait headlines: e.g “These 3 things will change your life”.
  • Heavy self-promotion: talking about your business or accomplishments is OK but don’t let it be in an unsavory way

Topics we’re interested in

  • Parenting + Technology: One of the most significant challenge and opportunity to effective parenting in this decade is the prevalence of technology. We want to hear thoughtful takes on this!
  • Parenting + Politics: politics continues to have outsized effect on how we parent. We always love smart and thoughtful takes on this!
  • Parenting + Media: given the amount of media that usurp children and adult attention understanding how it affects parenting is a question that will take a very long time to answer.
  • Parenting + Whatever You Think is Interesting: give us what ya got!

2. How We Compensate Writers:

Once a week we send out a long-form story to all of our subscribers (our feature story). We pay $30–$100 for this story. Otherwise, each story published in this publication will be given maximized reach so that you can earn through the partner program!
