Whether you’re an aspiring parenting journalist or someone with years of experience, you’ll learn strategies for pitching, honing your craft, advancing your career, and making more money. Plus, you’ll network with your peers around the globe, meet editors and make important professional connections. Each session lasts 75 minutes and is packed with information. All sessions will be recorded (except for the networking hour) and will be available for replay through June 30 (this link takes you to the recordings from 2021, which are GOLD and are a great deal and will for sure make you want to sign up for the 2022 version as well!).


The conference is presented by the Parenting Journalists Society, the first national organization focused on journalism about parenting and child development. We are committed to serving all parents by offering a diverse set of perspectives. Scholarships are available to offset the cost of registration, and we aim to be an anti-racist organization, intentionally seeking speakers who represent a range of identities.

Hope to see you on May 20!
