Pitch Smart Articles on Child-Rearing to ParentMap

ParentMap-ArticleParentMap, the Seattle-based parenting pub, is on the lookout for fresh new writers. The mag, which bills itself as the ”intelligent, trusted, essential resource connecting Puget Sound parents and community,” offers a full-spectrum menu of parenting content.

The mag is 80 to 90 percent freelance written and editors say they are open to both new and seasoned scribes. Pitchable content ranges from parenting essays to articles on health and education. Here are a few sections to focus on:

Every month ParentMap publishes a parenting essay in a section called “Voice”; it typically runs from 700 to 800 words. Then there’s the “Ages & Stages” department, which includes 800-word essays on children, specific to their age range: baby, toddler, preschooler, elementary age and teen. Articles in the “Wellness” section cover health topics that impact kids or families (they also run about 800 words). Features or cover stories tend to be about 1,600 to 1,800 words.
