If you’re interested in writing for us, please follow these guidelines exactly:
- 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: Mom, Pregnancy, Baby, Toddler, Kid, Body + Mind, Work + Money, Home, Relationships, Entertainment, Beauty, Food, or Travel.
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 3-4 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. 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 submissions that have already been published elsewhere, including on personal blogs.
- Only submit a piece once. We’ll circle back if we’re interested in considering your work for publication.
