Writing for Regional Parenting Magazines and Selling Reprints: My 176 Publishing Credits

This post is for those who want to write parenting and family articles and get paid to do so. I know there are a lot of parents out there doing the job every day, thinking, "I should write about this. I wonder if others struggle with this. I could help someone with my story or with a researched article about this topic."

I had those same thoughts back in 2005-ish when I had my third baby and was in the trenches. I checked into my local parenting magazine, Kansas City Parent, sent something to them about stocking up on meals instead of going grocery shopping daily, and I made a fast 25 bucks.

Then I wondered if I could maybe send the same piece to other magazines in other cities. Did they only want local content or would they take my little evergreen piece?

Fast forward MANY years: I present to you below a rockin' list of great magazines I have personally written for, and it increases every year. Once I figured out I could do this, I compiled a book of info and markets and guidelines and pay information so others could do the same thing. I've made as little as 10 bucks on a piece up to $250 (I don't write for national magazines yet).

And this is the cover of the big fat juicy 7th edition. Scroll to the bottom of the email to find out how to purchase.


I've written for every one of these on the list below, so I know all the information you want (guidelines, pay, how fast they pay, etc.). The ebook also includes national markets I have not broken into yet, like Babble.com, Parents, Working Mother, FamilyFun, Highlights, Brain,Child and many more. Check them out!
