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 from Pacific Northwest writers 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 will pay $25-$50 for accepted original articles, depending on the breadth and research involved in writing the article.

We will consider 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 17,500 Facebook and 4,500 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 confirm in your bio that you are living in the Pacific NW. Please include the social media sites you want included in your bio. Pictures are appreciated, but generally not necessary. Please use the subject: PDX Parent Pitch. Submissions without this subject will not be considered.

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.
