Hey mama! You have a story to share and we want to hear it! We’re looking for unique stories about your experience navigating motherhood, from the good to the bad to the strangely sticky.
Truly Mama is currently open to submissions. Please note: at this time all personal essay submissions are currently unpaid, but you will receive a byline with social media and bio links. We are open to both personal essays and service content on pregnancy, motherhood, parenting, health and wellness, and the products that you love. We are also accepting pitches based on the following themes:
- Taking Care of You: Making Sure Mom is Healthy
- Family and Baby Health & Wellness
Before you pitch, please take a look through out site–browse around to get a feel of the types of stories we feature and let us know why your voice needs to be heard. And be sure to review our Writers’ Guidelines as well. Content writers will be paid competitive rates for pieces, although a trial assignment may be required based on your portfolio. Writers of color and marginalized voices are always encouraged.
Send your pitches to firstname.lastname@example.org. Due to the volume of submissions we receive, we may not be able to respond to all pitches.
