Write for Us

Thank you for your interest in writing for PDX Parent! We appreciate your interest in one of the Portland area’s most popular and well-respected parenting magazines and websites.

At this time, we are accepting submissions for online content relating to:

  • Parenting
  • Kid-friendly recipes
  • Arts & crafts tutorials
  • Staying healthy with kids
  • Tried-and-true Portland-area adventures with kids
  • General humor

Extra credit will be given to articles tying in Portland and surrounding areas, either explicitly or in theme.

We are currently only looking for Pacific NW writers. We will update our guidelines if this changes.

We cannot pay for original articles at this time. We will be revisiting that in the near future.

We are accepting republished work, so long as you hold all rights to that work. There is no budget for republished work.

If accepted, your piece will be featured on our home page with link-backs to your blog and social media channels. It will also be pushed out on our popular social media channels, including to our more than 14,000 Facebook and 4,000 Twitter followers.

If you have an article you’d like us to consider, please send an email to alison.wilkinson@pdxparent.com with your full name, article (either in a Word document or as a link to the article on your website) and a short bio. Please include the social media sites you want included in your bio. Pictures are appreciated, but generally not necessary.

We will let you know if your piece has been accepted for publication within one week. If you don’t hear from us within two weeks, feel free to follow up. If your piece is accepted, some minor editing may take place.

We can’t wait to see what you’ve written!

Pitches to the PDX Parent print magazine should be submitted to julia.silverman@pdxparent.com.

By submitting your writing to us, you certify that the work is solely your own, and that you own all rights to that work.
