MotherlyStories are first person, 700-900 word stories, reflecting on the insights and issues you’ve experienced in motherhood—and the wisdom you’ve gained along the way. They address a specific pain point of mom life that you have been through or are going through right now. They help women realize they’re not alone, and they never judge. (They’re cool like that.) Instead, they inspire other mamas with stories of meaning, hope and a realization that, “you’ve got this.” MotherlyStories appear on our site, our social media channels, or could even be turned into a video.
Some example of great Motherly Stories—
We collaborate with pediatricians, stylists, teachers, child development experts, nutritionists, career coaches, family therapists, interior designers (and more!) to bring research-backed, evidence-based ideas + inspiration to our audience. Our mamas are looking for you! Write for Motherly + reach our amazing community of mothers.
We love to feature our community's authentic #momlife clips in our videos. We are always looking for honest depictions of the heartwarming, hilarious, and unglamorous moments of motherhood. Submit your captured moments for a chance to be featured in an upcoming Motherly video.
