Freelancers are welcome in all sections of Babble.
If you’re interested in writing for us, please follow these guidelines:
Use Babble search to see if your topic has been covered already.
If not, indicate in the subject line of your email what section of Babble your piece would run: pregnancy, baby, toddler, kid, mom, celebrity,prodcuts, or food. Mom is the general category subsuming mom/parent identity, health, and relationship issues.
Example subject line: Article for Mom: I Hate Going to the Park, Am I the Only One?
As concisely as possible, indicate if you’ve written for Babble before (include links to articles) and include 2-3 links to other things you’ve written. If you’ve never been published, that’s ok. Just let us know.
Tell us the topic of your piece in 1-2 lines maximum. If you can’t explain it easily, it’s not ready to pitch. Then explain your angle — your new contribution to the topic, what’s insightful/entertaining/counter-intuitive/poignant about your approach. For this, again, 1-2 lines maximum. Give us the first paragraph of the piece and then an outline of the rest. If it’s a list, include a few sample entries.
If the piece is already written, include it as an attachment. We are unable to accept articles that have been published elsewhere, including on personal blogs.
Only submit a piece once and please don’t follow up. Because of the volume of submissions, we can’t respond to everyone who writes us. If you don’t hear back, assume we decided not to accept it. Sorry about that.
Please direct all submissions to email@example.com.
Please send press releases and giveaway suggestions about products and fashion to firstname.lastname@example.org. This account is checked daily by our Giveaway Manager.
