Freelance Writers

Calling all Greater Seattle writers! Seattle’s Child magazine has thrived on the fascinating, funny, heartwarming, and extraordinary stories of local parents and writers (and parent-writer hybrids) for over 40 years. We rely on writers with diverse perspectives and backgrounds to connect authentically with the broad readership we serve. Covering things-to-do, food-to-eat, education, local businesses, social justice, evidence (and anecdote)-based parenting advice, and everything else under the clouds that is important to families in Seattle, we’re always on the hunt for the next great story. Have a newsworthy idea? We want to hear all about it! Here’s how to pitch us:

1) Familiarize yourself with our archives. What have we covered recently? What section would you like to write for? What can you say that hasn’t been said before?

2) Write a concise e-mail (three paragraphs, or so) telling us what you already know about the story you have in mind, what you don’t know yet, and who you want to talk to to find out. We want to know, most of all, why you’re interested in the topic. Let us know why you’re the best person to write this story.

3) Include a few links to your previously published work. No published clips yet? No problem. Send us a short sample of your writing that gives us a sense of your style and interests.

4) We’re always on the lookout for compelling human-interest stories, personal essays, investigative pieces, and new things-to-do with kids in the city.

5) If you don’t hear back from us within one week, follow-up! Editor-parent hybrids are busy, but we strive to respond in a timely fashion.

We pay by the word. Rates vary depending on the complexity of the assignment and the subject matter.
