ParentMap.com Seeks Pitches on Fertility, School Security, Child Development and More

ParentMap-ArticleParentMap, a free Seattle-based mag, has been providing parents with the information “they need to be the parent they want to be,” for the past 11 years, according to managing editor Natalie Singer-Velush.

The pub features a wide range of pitchable parenting content, including articles on education, tech and health. The mag’s digital component, ParentMap.com, is also ripe for pitching. All of the site’s departments are open to freelancers. Here are the sections to keep in mind:

ParentMap.com offers daily content on topics such as discipline, food, fertility, travel, school security, health, child development and more. There isn’t much of a Seattle-area focus online; most stories are national in scope. The only local section is “Out & About/Weekend Family Fun,” which offers museum roundups and weekend event picks. Payment ranges from $75 for a guest blog (for example, a 500-word first-person parenting essay) to $300-$400 for a reported article.
