Writer's Guidelines

Thank you for your interest in PARENTGUIDE News, the New York metropolitan area’s oldest and largest parenting publication. We are a monthly magazine catering to the needs and interests of parents who have children ages 12 and younger in New York City, New Jersey, Long Island, Rockland, Westchester, and Queens. Our total print circulation is 285,000. Once articles run in print, they are posted and archived online at www.parentguidenews.com. Our site receives about four million hits every month. For reprint permission, please contact the editor-in-chief.

PARENTGUIDE’s full-run monthly columns and feature articles cover health, education, travel, family fun, child-rearing, parenting issues, special needs, women’s interests, crafts, and other family-focused topics that appeal to readers nationwide. Our columns and local articles specific to each edition’s geographic region cover recreational activities, social events, and nonprofit organizations. We also have a comprehensive calendar of local events in print and online.

We welcome articles from professional authors, as well as never-before-published writers. Share your personal experiences, advice in the parenting arena, crafts, family concerns, health knowledge, professional wisdom, newsworthy observations, or humorous anecdotes with us. Manuscripts can be written in either third or first person format. You are invited to send a query letter or finished manuscript by e-mail. Allow for a three-month lead time. All manuscripts must be typed, single spaced, and 750 words at most. A three-sentence bio should be included and, if possible, photos or any other artwork. 

PARENTGUIDE News assumes no responsibility for the loss or damage of submitted materials. As a free publication, we do not offer financial payment to any of our freelance writers. However, all contributors receive masthead credit, a byline, and a bio. We retain the publishing rights for one year.

We appreciate your interest and look forward to working with you.
