The MMO invites submissions of content for publication on the site.
The editors also welcome the support of regular contributors for any of our ongoing content categories.

The Mothers Movement Online is a web magazine for mothers and others interested in the big picture of work and family in contemporary society. While personal essays about the challenges of mothering in today's culture form the core of the site's creative content, we look for writing that connects the personal to the political. Critical and analytical perspectives are also welcome, but all submissions should be written for a general audience.

Submissions must be free of copyright restrictions; contributors retain all rights to their work. Previously published work will be given full consideration. All copy or images should be delivered fully edited in a standard electronic file format. Essays or commentary containing factual information must include verifiable citations. Other general guidelines for submission are listed below:

  • Features: 1,000 to 3,000 words
  • Opinion: 650 to 1,200 words
  • Essays: 1,000 to 4,000 words
  • Book reviews: 650 to 1,200 words
  • Artwork: must be sized and optimized for Web viewing and provided in PC-compatible .gif or .jpg format (please include standard file extensions).

The MMO does not publish content or review books featuring parenting or career advice. However, critiques of parenting advice as an influence on the social and personal experience of mothering are encouraged. The MMO does not review children's literature.

Publication deadlines:
The MMO web magazine is published six times a year.
Please download the 2008 Editorial Calendar (3 pages, in .pdf)
for submission deadlines and upcoming issue topics.

The publication of accepted submissions is scheduled by topic and/or available space in upcoming editions. Although the editorial calendar lists featured topics for future editions, submissions on general topics are always welcome.
