UPDATES to 6th Edition of "Make Money to Write About Your Kids"

Please check back here regularly for updates to the 6th edition of Make Money to Write About Your Kids, as publications are always starting up and going out of business and making email changes!


That's what great about the print edition of the book:  you can just cross out the ones that are out of business and add in the new ones! Then make sure to adjust your email submission list accordingly! Here we go:

Alamo Area Kids & Family ... do not submit. They are not a paying market and asked me to take them off my list for submissions entirely.

Baltimore's Child try joanne@baltimoreschild.com

Bay State Parent is not accepting submissions at this time

Coastal Family: editor at coastalfamily dot com

Flagler Parent/Volusia Parent: I am hearing from other writers that they are finding their work in these magazines from recently to way back and were not contacted or paid. I had trouble getting paid in a timely manner. Submit at your own risk.

Girls Life email change

Good Life Family needs tween and teen articles but nothing about small kids, babies, toddlers, etc.

Hello, Darling (MOPS) does NOT pay but they have a large following of 120K with 60K Facebook fans so consider giving them one freebie

Maritime Family has still NOT relaunched. Their website says their "latest issue" was in 2013.

Neapolitan Family: as of August 15 the contacts are changing to Stacy Nicolau snicolau at neafamily dot com and Leigh Ann Newman lanewman at neafamily dot com.

Offspring Australia is nonpaying

If you get bounceback from Omaha Family's email in the book, try lauren at hathawaypublishing dot net

Parents' Source is no longer publishing.

Red River Family: working on getting publisher at redriverfamily dot com or laura at redriverfamily dot com to go through and asking their best email for submissions

Richmond Family Magazine only uses local writers

Sacramento Parent: shelly at sacramentoparent dot com

Solo Parent is not a paying market. If you would like to get some coverage and offer them a piece for free, go for it, but they do not pay. I apologize for adding them to the book without researching enough.

Space City Publishing (several magazines): kim at spacecitypublishing dot com

Tidwater Parent is no longer in print so please delete them from your list

Treasure Coast Parenting: trying k.ferraro at tcparenting dot com ... I had two emails for her and believe that period makes a difference

Utah Family: I hate to do this but I am taking them out of the book. I find my articles in their publication, notify them and then it takes them forever to pay. I recently contacted some other writer friends and they had the same experience. Once writer has been waiting two years for payment. This is not acceptable. If you don't treat your writers well, you will find yourself with no writers!
