Think Big for Working Mother Magazine

"Best of" compilations are in demand.


Working-MotherWorking Mother isn’t your ordinary parenting mag. Its readers are diverse, college educated, and juggling careers and children under 18 years old. Freelancers have ample opportunity to reach these driven moms who are in constant battle with the elusive work-life balance. In addition to money-related articles and first-person essays, editors are open to fresh angles on Working Mother’s “Best Companies” packages.

[Executive editor Barbara] Turvett is specifically looking for “new and juicy issues involving big companies” and topics centered around work life/flexibility/paid leave. Large compilation articles, such as “100 Best Companies” and “Best Companies for Multicultural Women,” typically have multiple writers and all features run about 1,500 words or more.
