The Mother Magazine welcomes fresh and original submissions for publication in our printed magazine as well as on our blog.

We publish a wide variety of long-form articles. Please familiarise yourself with our magazine’s philosophy.

Details on submitting content to The Mother Magazine: 

  • All submission can be emailed, as attachments, directly to Starr Meneely – starr@themothermagazine.co.uk
  • We do not pay for articles. A One Year Subscription is offered for articles we publish. For other types of submissions published ie. birth stories, recipes, and artwork / photographs we provide a one free copy of the issue in which they appear.
  • Please note that The Mother Magazine does not accept more than one submission at a time, nor do we accept simultaneous submissions (sent to several magazines or online publications at once). We rarely accept articles that have been published elsewhere. Acceptance/rejection is based entirely upon the editorial team’s perception of content, quality of writing, and how the article fits into our publishing schedule as well as its potential appeal to our readers. Once an article is accepted, we reserve the right to edit without the advance approval of the writer.
  • If we accept your article, you agree to not publishing it elsewhere, including blogs, online magazines and elsewhere on the Internet or in print, for at least twelve months after publication with us. If it does appear elsewhere after twelve months, the publication or internet site concerned agrees to contact The Mother Magazine Ltd. first for permission. Reprints will begin with: “This article first appeared in The Mother Magazine (date + issue number) and is reprinted with permission. www.themothermagazine.co.uk.” We also request a copy of the publication with the reprinted article.
  • We receive a lot of article submissions. Very few are used, generally because the author hasn’t understood our magazine philosophy or it doesn’t fit into our current publishing programme. At other times, it is because the submission is unprofessionally presented. We recommend you use a spell (UK English) and grammar check, as it can make all the difference to how your work is perceived.
  • We reserve the right for all articles, artwork and/or images that are used in our print magazine to be published and/or reproduced digitally or in print, and shared anywhere on our website, blog, RSS feed or links via our social media websites.
