Guidelines

That Odd Mom publishes guest posts from Odd Moms & Dads from all walks of life.

The publication is managed by Chief Odd Mom Jessica S. Parmer, Education editor Maya Rushing Walker, assistant editor Michelle Hozey and authored by a team of writers, and a constant rotation of guest contributors. 

Style

That Odd Mom publishes stories that are free of judgement, share real life experiences and speak to all moms regardless of age, marital status, gender preference, sexuality, race, religion etc… We want our readers to feel at home and comfortable, this their tribe. We aren’t fans of click-bait headlines or content for the sake of content. Published stories must provide some sort of value to the readers, whether it be a feeling of solidarity or useful information that will help them navigate the world as “mom.”

At this time, That Odd Mom has had to put a freeze on writer payments. We hope to resume payments soon.

Featured Stories

Featured stories should fit within our monthly themes and address one of the story ideas listed for any given month in the editorial calendar (found below.) Each story should be a minimum of 1,000 words in length, but no more 2,000 words and discuss the topic in depth. We particularly like memoir style pieces. As features are typically covered by our writing team, please send an inquiry to editor@thatoddmom.info to pitch your idea before submitting a draft.

That Odd Mom will accept interviews for our new monthly feature, Women in Media. The interview should highlight a woman who is a making a difference in the media industry (preferably a mom,) and highlight her successes and struggles.
