Write For Scary Mommy

Interested in seeing your work appear on Scary Mommy? Wonderful!

Submissions are closed until July 1st. Sorry for any inconvenience, and please check back with us after that date. Thank you!

Please agree to licensing terms below, and e-mail your submission to submit@scarymommy.com. 

  • Include a 2-3 sentence bio with your submission (social channels and blog hyperlinked, please!)

  • Paste your post directly in the body of your e-mail. If a post has previously run, please also include the link to where it appears online.

  • Please indicate if your post is original or republished work in the subject line of your email.
  • Do not double space after periods or between paragraphs.

  • If you are submitting a photo, it should be high resolution and landscape size (horizontal). Please send the original photograph rather than Instagram image.
  • Note: We are always in search of highly relatable and general humor material. Lists and short essays (under 900 words) seem to work best, while personal anecdotes or specific personal stories do not.

  • Scary Mommy will pay $100 per original piece of content (sorry, we can’t pay for a piece if it has appeared anywhere online.) After your post has appeared, please invoice finance@somespider.com. (Invoice template can be found here if you need one.)
Due to the high number of submissions we receive, you will hear from us within one week if we are able to run your post. If you do not hear from us within that time frame, please feel free to submit elsewhere.
Thank you!
