Write for Us

Thank you for your interest in writing for PDX Parent! We appreciate your interest in one of the Portland area’s most popular and well-respected parenting magazines and websites.

Web Submissions

At this time, we are accepting submissions from Pacific Northwest writers for online content relating to tried-and-true Portland-area adventures with kids, parenting, and kid-friendly activities. Our readers love to hear from other parents about what is new and fun in our area. We are currently only looking for Pacific NW writers. We will update our guidelines if this changes.

We will pay $25-$50 for accepted original articles, depending on the breadth and research involved in writing the article.

We will consider republished work, so long as you hold all rights to that work. There is no budget for republished work.

If accepted, your piece will be featured on our home page with links to your blog and social media channels. It will also be pushed out on our popular social media channels.

If you have an article you’d like us to consider, please send an email to meg.asby@pdxparent.com with your full name, article (either in a Word document or as a link to the article on your website) and a short bio. Please use the subject: PDX Parent Pitch. Submissions without this subject will not be considered.

We will let you know if your piece has been accepted for publication within one week. If your piece is accepted, some minor editing may take place. By submitting your writing to us, you certify that the work is solely your own, and that you own all rights to that work.

Print Submissions

Pitches to the PDX Parent print magazine should be submitted to denise.castanon@pdxparent.com. We do not accept prewritten articles or reprints. All pitches must be original and locally relevant. We pay $400-$450 for feature-length articles and $100 for Field Trip columns.

Submissions from Local Businesses

If you are affiliated with a business and you’d like to submit an article, please email our publisher Jill Weisensee: jill.weisensee@pdxparent.com.
