Interested in seeing your work appear on Sing At Home Mom?
Are you an actor and a parent? Are you a theatre or parenting blogger with a knack for humorous yet informative writing?
We are looking for writers to cover theatre/performing arts and parenting topics through the lens of performance arts workers who are also parents. Our audience is mostly female-identifying actors between the ages of 30-45, and our niche is very specific.
What’s in it for you?
Our contributing writers can expect to be paid $100 per piece ranging between 1000 and 1200 words with any necessary photos taken by the writer.
Not all pitches will be accepted. We will contact you only if we have decided to move forward with your pitch.
Your post may be edited for our audience.
Your posts must fit seamlessly within our own content.
We may need to alter your post before it is published, and edits may occur afterwards. You will have a chance to edit your content based on our notes prior to publishing.
What Are We Looking For?
Although we are a blog for moms, we are not a typical ‘mommy blog’. Even though we write FOR the parent-artist, we also welcome general parenting topics (ie Kid-Friendly 3 Ingredient Chicken Parmesan ) so long as you, the writer, are also a parent-artist/worker regardless of whether or not you are currently active in the industry.
Here are the topics and types of posts we are currently accepting:
- Behind the scenes as a work-at-home parent-artist. Whether you work in Voiceover, Composing, Writing, Filming, YouTuber, or other media/etc. Let us know what you do and how you do it!
- Why I Quit Acting/Working A large percentage of our audience will identify with “giving up the dream” to raise a family. Whether you are a stay-at-home parent or you have found work outside the performing arts, your voice is needed here.
- How Your “Type” Has Changed. Our tagline is “From Ingénue to MomBod.” Navigating one’s changing type is quite daunting, especially after you’ve taken a break.
- General Parenting posts. Kid-friendly recipes, crafts, holidays, mommy musings – but with a theater twist! (ie Unsolicited Advice is Like Giving Another Actor a Note)
- Show reviews Focus on shows where parenthood or childhood is the focus, TYA, and kid-friendly Broadway shows.
- Pivots and side-hustles! Have you turned your love for theatre into something else? It’s a great way to promote your business!
If you have a post idea that is relatable but not listed, please let us know!
- Honest and raw and pure. Even a little snarky if it makes sense (see What Actor’ Equity Open Access Means To Me and Stop Hate Watching)
- Also, make us laugh! You’ll win us over with humor every time! However, kindly refrain from jokes concerning race, sex, tragedy, or politics.
- Teach us something. Or make us feel something.
Your post should speak to our specific audience. Take a look at our blog to get an idea of our content and direction. We are a blog for parent-artists who have left the industry in order to raise their families, so personal experiences are a must and a plus!
- At least 1000-1200 words. If you write beyond 1200 words, we will pay $0.08 per word (after 1200) up to 2500 words. If you have a post idea that will need more than 2500 words, we can talk about it!
- Keywords! We will supply the keyword.
- Your bio and headshot. Let us know who you are! Our readers want to know they aren’t alone in this unique artistic parenting journey. A 2-4 sentence bio is fine!
- Please include your socials! Plug your website, blog, social media, Backstage profile (if you still have one!)
- Links! Please include any relevant links to articles or resources mentioned in your piece.
- Photos. These will depend on the nature of your post. We will chat!
- Original unpublished work. Your work must not appear anywhere else (online or otherwise). Once you’ve written a blog post for us it cannot be republished anywhere else, including your own blog.
- NO politics. Unless your post revolves around how legislature will affect parents in the arts, please leave politics out of your post.
Send us your pitch!
Do you have an amazing idea to pitch to us? We want to see it!
If your pitch is a good fit, we will be in touch with you and provide the necessary keywords and frequency.
We will let you know if there is any editing to do you on your part. No more than 2 rounds of edits will be required. We reserve the right to further edit your piece to fit the tone and narrative of Sing At Home Mom.
