We are always on the lookout for good freelance writers. In general, we assign the topics (based on your expertise and interests) but we are also open to your ideas.

  • We cover Monterey and Santa Cruz Counties and articles should be of interest to our local readers. We're especially interested in articles about family fun–places to go, things to do, undiscovered treasures!
  • Pay rate is dependent on the number of words but in general articles under 900 words are paid $50, over that $75. 
  • Articles should not only offer information to parents but also tell them how to use that info.
  • Articles must be thoroughly researched and quotes from experts are usually included.
  • Most of our articles are between 700 and 1000 words. We rarely go over that except for travel features or in-depth investigations.
  • Sidebars, photographs, and infographics are a great extra and much appreciated.

Please do not write an article and then send it to us without explicit agreement between us. If you are interested in writing for us, either on a specific topic or as a freelancer, please contact us first.
