Pitch Your “Parental Confessions” to Babble.com

An honest, unglamorous portrayal of parenthood is rare in parenting glossies, but that is exactly what Babble.com is looking for in its pitches.

Dedicated to telling “the truth about parenting,” Babble wants stories that are real, no matter how good, bad or messy.  So, cut the cute and stick to the truth when pitching.

If you’re an unknown freelancer, the personal essay is your best shot at getting published, said Jack Murnighan, director of analytics and content strategy. Aim for 750- to 1,200-word “interesting first-person stories coming from the trenches of parenthood.”
