With 60 percent of the content written by freelancers, Parent & Child is one of the rare pubs that accepts feature pitches from new writers. Bonus: it also pays up to $2 per word.
Nick Friedman, editor-in-chief, explained that his staff is looking for writers who can channel their personal experience and speak to parents on a personal level. “We want to hear some bold ideas, and we want to know about human interest stories that all parents can relate to and that help provide solutions for families.”
Friedman also stressed that he wants the publication to have material that tackles issues and contemporary subjects through a fresh perspective. “We are not some stuffy, goody-goody parenting title,” he said.
