Have you got a story to tell?

Would you like to share your thoughts on parenting in the city with the largest and fastest growing international parenting community in the Netherlands?

Amsterdam Mamas is always looking for interesting thought-provoking, well-written articles about parenting in the city to share with our community of readers.

 

What we are looking for:

The articles we publish must be relevant and applicable to Amsterdam Mamas readers, so focus on issues or stories that will be interesting to families based in Amsterdam and the surrounding regions. These include:

  • Education – specific to the Amsterdam education system

  • Family Travel – travelling with children internationally

  • Family Life – all about raising a family in Amsterdam

  • Health and Wellbeing – raising a healthy family in Amsterdam

  • Pregnancy – the process of pregnancy and birth in Amsterdam

  • Out and About - exploring Amsterdam and the Netherlands

This list is not exhaustive and we welcome submissions from authors on other topics which they feel are relevant to our readers.

 

We strive to ensure that the content you provide will make the connection you want it to with our readers. Therefore, as a professional website, we ensure that your work goes through our established editing process and if we feel it is necessary to do so we may publish your work in a slightly amended format. This includes headlines and copy.

 

When submitting an article, please provide the following:

  • Any relevant links, citations and high-resolution, horizontal images (including photos of the people who are being described in your story, where appropriate). Please ensure that you have the rights to use the images you submit. By submitting them you confirm that you are free to use them without breach of copyright.

  • A biography of 2-3 sentences, with relevant links (unless you are submitting anonymously, if this is the case please make that clear in your submission).

  • The text of the post should be copied in the body of the email AND attached as a file (or link to a Google doc). Please aim to keep posts between 600-1000 words.

 

Compensation

Amsterdam Mamas is run by a team of enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers who are passionate about Amsterdam and supporting the families in it. At this point we do not compensate for articles that are submitted to us.

 

Advertising inquiries:

Amsterdam Mamas does not accept contributor articles that simply advertise or promote a product or brand. If you would like to connect your business or brand to our community then we would love to discuss that further with you. Please contact promotions@amsterdam-mamas.nl so that we can talk to you about the options we offer.

You may submit your article for consideration to: content@amsterdam-mamas.nl

Please understand that we get sent a lot of articles, and we are not able to use everything we receive. It is inevitable that sometimes we have to decline articles because of their content, quality, or sometimes because we have too many articles on a specific topic.

Unfortunately, due to the high volume of submissions we receive, only applicants with successful submissions will be contacted, and this may take up to 3 weeks. You are welcome to submit as many articles as you wish as long as they fall within our guidelines.
