WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR:We're looking for lighthearted non-fiction articles every parent can relate to, preferably ones with a funny twist. We are also looking for imaginative and clever fictional stories and story poems, like the kind you might read in a children's book. In the past, we've published childhood recollections, travel adventures, conversations about autism, adoption stories, and funny commentary on the everyday saga of parenting. It's okay to tackle tough subjects, as long as it's done in an uplifting way. (We don't do mommy wars.) Like our mission statement says, "We believe life is beautiful, life is valuable, and life changes when you see it through the eyes of a child. We seek to transcend skin color, language and zip codes and bring out the real, wild, magical creativity inherent in every child."
When thinking about what to submit, keep our favorite articles in mind.
Written submissions should be short, around 400-1000 words, and not have been published, posted, shared, or displayed elsewhere. We're looking for content that’s fresh and original.COMPENSATION & TERMS
