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 are unable to offer financial compensation for featured essays.

Themes & Deadlines:

Spring 2020 ~ Ages & Stages of Childhood Series

We hope the Ages & Stages of Childhood series brings together beautiful and honest stories of mothering kids at different stages of development. You might focus on a particular memory, lesson you learned, reflections you have on your child’s stage, ways you’ve seen them change and grow, what has gone as you expected, and what surprised you about a new season. You might touch on how you have changed through your different stages of mothering, how you’ve grown wiser, or what you wish you would have known in past seasons. You might describe specific challenges you encountered and how you overcame them. We are looking for story-driven essays that encourage, inspire, or educate moms who might be one or two steps behind you.
