|Now Accepting Submissions|
We’re accepting submissions! Our goal is and always has been to enrich the lives of local moms! Accepted submissions will be promoted across all social media platforms and you will maintain the rights for your work. In most circumstances, we are willing to consider previously published articles.
(300-700 words): These will be signature pieces on the WoodlandsMommy.com website. We’re looking for meaningful essays that share certain qualities of the joys, insights, trials, and fulfillment related to mommyhood in any aspect. These honest, encouraging pieces should employ a strong personal voice and a down-to-earth tone. Examples of ideal essays include a mother’s road to discovering herself, a mother recommitting to her marriage, a funny anecdote about coping with sibling rivalry in your home, a mother’s fight to adopt her foster child, a mother decision to medicate (or not) her son, wisdom you’ve developed as you deal with a special needs child, etc. All essays will include a byline with short bio and photograph, if allowed. Pays $25 upon publication.
MOMMY TIPS & ADVICE (250-700 words): These feature articles will be valuable, compelling “how-to’s” or advice articles on subjects relevant to our mommy audience such as housekeeping, child rearing, finances, etc.. Most articles in this section will employ the use of bullets or lists, such as “How to Tidy Your House in Ten Minutes or Less,” or “Five Things You Should Know Before Letting Your Child Ride the School Bus,” or “How to Save Big on Your Grocery Bill,” etc. We’d prefer articles with a relevance to our local area. All essays will include a byline with short bio and photograph, if allowed. Pays $25 upon publication.
