Are You a Mama Writer?

Consider joining MommyThink as a contributor or regional editor!

Write an article: If you write about attachment parenting or natural mothering and would like to submit a relevant article to this site, we'd love to see what you have! Specific subject areas include pregnancy, natural childbirth, midwifery, home birth, breastfeeding, natural baby care, cosleeping, baby wearing, gentle discipline and other natural family living subjects.

For most articles, we pay $25 per article, for 30 day exclusive electronic rights, or $50 for 90 day exclusive electronic rights. We may pay up to 10 cents per word for extra special articles. Yes, all articles on our website are special, but we mean an article that contains some kind of "scoop" or a super fresh look at a particular subject. Articles which require in depth research would fit into this category. We expect to publish about one or two of these "exclusive" articles per quarter. In addtion to our fairly modest compensation, we would be happy to publish your article or story with a bio that links to your website or provides further information about any services or products that you offer. No affiliate links, please. We like personal stories, a bit of humor and good references. Articles should be 750-2500 words in length (though this is a flexible guideline).

Email your material in the body of an email to Writers at MommyThink.com.

Please include a short author’s bio with any relevant links to your work, products or services. We will notify you within four weeks (sometimes sooner) if we plan to publish your article. If you do not hear from us, that means we cannot publish your article at this time. One of the most frequent reasons, at this time, for not publishing material is that it is not appropriate for our website. We are a niche website and we ask you to be familiar with the subject matter and style of this website in order to be sure that your submission would be relevant to our readers. If we decide to publish your piece, we will request either 30 or 90 day exclusive electronic rights and permanent internet archiving rights. In plain English, this means that this work cannot have been published before and you may not submit your work to any other website or electronic media outlet for 30 or 90 days (depending on agreed upon terms). It also means we may permanently keep your article in our archives (though you may sell it elsewhere).
