We are looking for teachers! If youve ever wished you could put a bug in the ear of your students parents, and you have some writing skills to back it up, then wed love to hear from you. The easiest place to break in is with activities-- were always looking for projects families can do together. We publish a lot of content. Were always looking for freelancers with great ideas, honed writing, and consistent dependability. Look at our site and make sure you have a sense of our style and tone. Then submit!
We ask that you please send the text of your query or submission in plain text in the body of your e-mail, rather than as an attached file, as we may not be able to read the format of your file. Please put the words "EDITORIAL SUBMISSIONS" in the subject line of the e-mail. Before you submit, please spend some time familiarizing yourself with the style and tone of our site. Also, get a sense of what we publish. Then send a short pitch with an appropriate idea. No need to send a resume, but please do tell us a little bit about yourself -- your experience and background as a writer and qualifications for writing a particular story. We are particularly interested in hearing from teachers. If you have clips, paste them into the bottom of your email or supply Web addresses of pages that contain your work. No more than three or four, please! Also please note that our focus is on stories of interest to parents of preschool-grade 12 children. We do not cover college or infancy and will not be able to respond to such submissions. We do our best to respond to all inquiries, but be aware that weve got a small staff and are sometimes inundated. If you have not heard back from us after three weeks, please assume that we will not be able to use your idea or submission.
