AustinMama Writers' Guidelines
In our Mamas We Like section, a local mama and her work are spotlighted and praised. Readers can nominate a potential candidate for Mamas We Like by sending an email to: mamaswelike @ austinmama.com
Do you have to have children to submit work to AustinMama? Absolutely not! We believe that nurturers come in many forms, both literally and figuratively. Nurturers grow thoughts, tend minds and help the community thrive on a variety of levels. In essence, we consider the work of some childless women as a "mothering" of sorts -- mothering other women, mothering ideas, mothering the community -- and we'd like to think that a childless woman will find interest and value in AustinMama without feeling like she doesn't know the secret handshake.
Do you have to live in Austin to publish with AustinMama? Again, no. We hope to be able to feature content that is 90% Austin generated, 10% other.
We are a paying market, and prefer to work with writers who have some publishing experience and a clip or two for us to peruse. We purchase one-time publishing and archiving rights. All other rights remain with the author. Pay is based on the material and writer's experience -- usually between $35.00 - $50.00
