Write For Us

Welcome, Writers!

We are grateful for your interest in contributing to the Kindred Mom community. This collaborative blog and podcast are quiet offerings in a noisy world, curated with the primary goal of encouraging moms through personal and family challenges with wisdom and intention. 

We feature writing from mothers with all different mothering experiences including married moms, single moms, adoptive moms, step-moms, ethnically diverse moms, and moms of children with special needs/unique challenges. New writers are always welcome! 

General Information

We seek original essays for inclusion on our blog, and we request 30 days exclusivity from the date of publication. We reserve the right to decline essays that don’t fit with our curated series. All submissions are offered by writers on a voluntary basis, and we make every effort to promote featured pieces to the furthest extent of our social reach. We are unable to offer financial compensation for featured essays.

Themes & Deadlines:

Fall 2020 ~ Connect Series

Submission Deadline: August 1, 2020

We are now accepting submissions for our Fall 2020 series: Connect. This series will focus on the beauty and importance of connection, and specifically how connection with God, with spouses, with our children, community, and friends are all an essential part of living whole and abundant lives.

We would love to see a variety of angles on gathering people together, fostering and strengthening connection in relationships, and the ways connection plays an important role in living well.

Essay topics may include, but are not limited to:

-friendship (building friendships with other moms, helping our children navigate friendship, etc.)
-strong communication
-vulnerability as the path to greater connection
-conflict, disconnection, forgiveness, and restoration
-connecting with God, our children, our spouses
-connecting with our own spirits, minds, and bodies
-the interconnectedness of life and motherhood
-connection vs. disconnection
-reconnecting after times of distance, struggle, or difficulty

We planned this series topic well before the COVID-19 pandemic began, but it now it seems like a timely and perhaps providential time to begin a conversation around what connection looks like in our communities—it has certainly shifted dramatically. We are open to references to the pandemic but hope to create a timeless series that is not overtly tied to the pandemic. Please note that we will therefore have limited spaces open to pieces about social distancing, staying home, etc. We look forward to reading your stories!
