Birmingham Parent is a bimonthly regional magazine for parents. The magazine targets all types of parents.
The editors say, "Editorial content serves expectant parents, moms and dads of infants, toddlers, adolescents and teens, and grandparents helping raise grandchildren. Birmingham Parent crosses all faiths and all cultural barriers to reach the one central goal for every parent – raising happy, healthy, productive children."
This is a paying market. Writers with accepted pieces should submit an invoice to get paid on publication.
What They're Looking For
The editors want a mix of fun and substantive stories for parents in the Birmingham, Alabama, area. They prefer local writers but are also open to other writers who are used to writing for regional parenting publications.
The editors say, "Our first priority is to find top-notch, original stories that reflect the diverse communities of Central Alabama. Local stories and sources are preferred."
How to Submit
Potential writers can pitch the editors by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The editors say, "Please be mindful that content for our publications is determined months in advance. Story ideas should be pitched several months before the month it would run."
In this workshop, you will work with a published article writer to develop, research and write two articles suitable for publication in magazines you've identified as appropriate markets. You will get feedback from your instructor on your first and second draft of both your articles.
