A few guidelines for article submissions

  • We’re looking for writing that speaks about life at the intersection of work, motherhood and creativity.
  • It’s best if the articles are between 500- 1200 words, though we’ll make exceptions for particularly strong pieces.
  • Submissions can be previously published (as long as we can get permission to republish).
  • You will maintain the rights for your work.
  • We may ask to edit your work slightly, but will always ask for permission first.
  • We are not interested in general parenting articles — sorry! It’s us, not you!

If you have an idea for an article but aren’t quite sure, feel free to run the idea by us and we’ll let you know if it’s a good fit!

To get an idea of what we’re looking for, here are some articles we love:

1. Personal essays — we prefer a strong voice and point of view (funny never hurts either)

2. Professional inspiration and advice

3. Professional how-tos

We look forward to reading your submission!
