Write for Woman's Day Magazine -- Submission Writers Guidelines

Thank you so very much for your interest in writing for Woman's Day. Unfortunately, you are not alone. In fact, you have so much company, and we have such a small cadre of editors, that we have had to develop what you will no doubt find a rather tough policy on unsolicited manuscripts.

This is what you need to know: Our editors work almost exclusively with experienced writers who have clips from major national magazines. As a result, we accept unsolicited manuscripts only from writers with such credentials. There are no exceptions.

If you do have significant national writing experience, and you have an idea or manuscript that you think might interest us, e-mail us at, and please include some of your most recent clips.

Write for Narratively -- Submission Writers Guidelines

Just got this information in my Parenting Magazine Writers Facebook group from one of our writers. She's going to be working as a guest editor for Narratively, "a digital publication focused on ordinary people with extraordinary stories." Amazing news!

She's looking for "first-person stories in the parenting space or hybrid first-person/reported. I'm also looking for other stories, so it doesn't need to be parenting-related. Stories should be framed around active, narrative scenes. I need drafts of first-person stories and will consider pitches for reported. Looking for quirky, weird experiences (not anecdotes or think pieces) that transformed you or shifted your perception in some way."

171 Parenting Magazine Publishing Credits (Mostly Paid) and How You Can Also Get Published!

Do you want to get paid for your parenting and family articles and stop giving them away for free or getting paid pennies per view?

Below are the just the first 50 of my publishing credits. You'll see that most of them are paid. When I was starting out I would give a piece for free very now and then for the byline but I don't do that anymore. Once you get to the bottom of the list you can hit the link to see the rest!

These are great places to work for, and they are all in my book, the 6th edition of "Make Money to Write About Your Kids: Get Published in Regional, National and Online Parenting and Family Magazines" on Kindle or Cloud (you can read it on your laptop if you wish). The print edition in 6x9" is also ready and it's a hefty little dude that you can highlight and put sticky notes in and mark up when you get published in certain markets! Check for changes and updates here! 

Keep in mind I have been published in some of these magazines up to 30 times with 30 different articles (actually, sometimes they'll use the same piece in different years and pay me twice, which is fair).

I might write a piece and have it published up to 30 times as a reprint. Magazines know you are sending your work as reprints to other magazines so why are you writing something ONCE and only letting it be used ONCE? Recycle that puppy as a reprint!

And to write for Redbook's The Mix, check out this post!

REDBOOK is targeted at women between the ages of 25 and 45 who define themselves as smart, capable, and happy with their lives. Many, but not all, of our readers are going through one of two key life transitions: single to married and married to mom. Each issue is a provocative mix of features geared to entertain and inform them, including:

■ News stories on contemporary issues that are relevant to the reader's life and experience, and explore the emotional ramifications of cultural and social change

■ First-person essays about dramatic pivotal moments in a woman's life

■ Marriage articles with an emphasis on strengthening the relationship

■ Short parenting features on how to deal with universal health and behavioral issues

■ Reporting on exciting trends in women's lives

Writers are advised to read at least the last six issues of the magazine (available in most libraries) to get a better understanding of appropriate subject matter and treatment. We prefer to see detailed queries rather than completed manuscripts, and suggest that you provide us with some ideas for sources/experts. Please enclose two or more samples of your writing, as well as a stamped, self-addressed envelope. Send queries to:

Articles Department
300 West 57th Street, 22nd Floor
