We are ready to invite a new group of writers to join our amazing existing team, and are so excited to share more about this instrumental volunteer role.
Our team is full of local East Valley & Phoenix moms who are passionate about building our community, busting mom stereotypes, and connecting to other parents online and off. Learn more about what it takes to be on our team, and apply today!
What do I get out of this?
Special team only events, a professional headshot, network marketing with other local writers, bloggers and small businesses, support in editing, training in social media, the opportunity to represent your community. But the most valuable thing we can offer, according to our current team, is the stronger sense of community and opportunity to meet and bond with other people with varied backgrounds and lifestyles.
Do I need to be a writer?
No! We want people with interesting lives, backgrounds, and perspectives on parenthood. We want people who are willing to connect to others, who are eager to grow their personal support system, and who believe in the motto, “better together”. We can train you on how to blog! We do expect prompt communication however.
What is expected of me?
- Submit one *unique* blog post a month (ideally 300-800 words long). (We do not accept previously published content.)
- Be on Facebook (for team communication and social engagement)
- Commit to us for one year.
- Be comfortable with social media and tech, generally.
Do you give me topics, or do I come up with them on my own?
We have a calendar with topics you can use if you’re stuck, but what we love most is for you to write about whatever you’d like! Personal and relatable mom stories is what our readers love the most!
What do I write about?
We do ask that our posts focus on parenthood, partnership, friendship, and of course the East Valley & Phoenix!
How do I apply?
Application is super simple, all online, and linked below. We ask that all applicants include a previously unpublished blog post or written piece for us to review as your sample (you can include more if you want, but one is required). If you are invited to join the team, and choose to do so, we will use this first piece as your submission for March (so you are able to hit the ground running!).
Your sample should be:
- between 300-800 words (less is more!)
- topical to parenthood
- topical to East Valley/Phoenix living
Applicant Deadline: January 31, 2020
You will be notified that we received your submission via an email from an executive team member.
All applicants will be notified of their status by Monday, February 3, 2020. If selected you must be available TWO evenings in the month of February. Once for an online training call (TBD) and once for team photos (TBD).
