SUBMISSIONS FOR POTENTIAL BONUS COMPENSATION: TEMPORARILY CLOSED
MockMom is a funny little corner of Sammiches and Psych Meds devoted strictly to satire, and these submissions are also eligible for compensation according to the payment scale outlined above. We are always looking for 150-1000 word satirical submissions in the following categories:
- Pop Culture
- Health & Beauty
Anything written from a parenting perspective is fair game.
PLEASE NOTE: We provide links to writers’ personal blogs and social media profiles in an effort to help them grow readership and followers. We do not, however, run posts promoting a product or service and will not include promotional links in guest posts. To submit a sponsored post promoting a product or service, or to have one of our experienced writers craft one for publication on the site, please see our Advertising/PR details.
- The first step is to browse the site to see what kinds of posts get published and do well.
- Content that does the best on this site focuses on one or more of the following topics:
- Humor — This is a biggie. People come here for heartfelt pieces, of course, but they also love to laugh. If you’ve got a funny bone, showcase it. If not, don’t force it. There are other things people love about this site.
- Marriage and relationships
- Life — This includes style and entertainment (such as book and movie reviews) as well.
- Special needs parenting and children
- MockMom Submissions — Must be satire focusing on parenting-related issues. Think The Onion meets Reductress.
- Content should be between 500 and 1,000 words (150+ for MockMom submissions).
- Do not include images with submissions.
- Content must be thoroughly edited. The occasional typo or spelling issue is no big deal, but pieces with many grammar and mechanics issues will be kicked back for editing before being accepted.
