Writer’s Guidelines

Mindful Parenting Magazine Writer’s Guidelines

Please read the below guidelines carefully prior to submitting work.

We provide parents with information that is inspiring, uplifting and authentic. Whilst we provide information focusing on the child and the joys of parenting, we also recognise that dealing with the challenges of parenting and social responsibilities in a world that is often frenetic can be difficult. We hope to provide parents with information that is supportive and empowering but non-preachy.

Tone and Style

Please familiarise yourself with Mindful Parenting before making a submission to get a feel for the topics covered and writing style.

Mindful Parenting aims to provide readers with articles based on child development, education and social and emotional experiences of both parents and children, gentle and alternative therapies, health, mind and body wellbeing, and sustainable living practices. We also aim to provide parents with stories that inspire and empower others.

Articles do not need to focus exclusively on parenting as we know that parents enjoy reading about diverse topics.

Topics that provoke and inspire with original content and angles are most welcome. Fun and playful can also be good!


We are currently welcoming unsolicited submissions for articles covering, but not limited to:

- Parenting
- Children’s Literacy/Book Reviews
- Natural therapies
- Inspirational stories
- Eco Living
- Family topics
- Education
- Wellbeing (for adults and/or children)
- Cooking/Recipes
Articles should be checked factually and claims substantiated wherever applicable/possible.


Mindful Parenting will not publish articles that have been published elsewhere. Please make sure your content is original.
