Atlanta Parent Magazine is an award-winning, locally-owned print and online magazine. We emphasize reader-friendly, down-to-earth content with a distinctly local focus.
Personal Essays are a great way to get published. These parent essays, written on speculation, are told in first-person in 400 to 500 words. Include a bio, contact information and photo. In these articles, writers often discuss the fun or quirky side of parenting.
Practical articles address a compelling issue in parenting. These articles are usually 400 to 600 words in which an author presents an issue or problem in parenting and then a solution or where to turn to for help. Practical articles can also be activity-based; writers for these types of articles keep the information short and to the point.
Our larger feature articles cover a wide range of important issues including childcare, education, adolescence, motherhood, family travel, kids’ products and navigating the joys and challenges of parenting. These articles often include quotes from experts in the field, while also bringing in the voices of local families.
