SmartMom Submission Guidelines

Thank you for your interest in writing for SmartMom! We’re currently looking for new talent to add to our pool of writers. If you have an idea you think would connect with our readership, you are welcome to submit your query for our editorial consideration to meredith@smartmom.co. Please read below for our submission guidelines.

SmartMom looks for smart, well-written pieces that touch on contemporary issues, interests and concerns of parents. If you would like to submit to us, please look over our past blog posts to get an idea of our format and the topics we have covered in the past.

If you have an idea you feel would be a good fit for SmartMom, please send over a short pitch outlining the topic you’d like to address as well as your strategy for writing the story. Demonstrate that you are adept at doing research by mentioning the kinds of sources you intend to use. Keep in mind that all of our articles include expert advice and/or real-parent examples as well as current study data.

We generally work with writers who have some experience, so please make sure you list the publications you’ve written for and include examples of your published work.

If we decide to pursue your idea(s), we will contact you directly to discuss.

Thanks again for your interest in SmartMom!
