About

Baby Corner's provides a wide range of information for those pregnant, new parents, or trying to become pregnant. We seek out submissions that are informative and unique. We rely on the experience, research, and information of writers to publish articles that will appeal to our readers.

All articles are paid prior to publication with full credit given to the writer. Please inquire about our payment policies.

Baby Corner's articles inform, and ultimately lead the reader to contact their doctor. Medical/factual based articles should be written to ease the mind of the reader with appropriately sourced medical facts, offering healthy tips for prevention, and advice for contacting their doctor if necessary.

Style Guidelines

Lifestyle / Blog Articles:

Lifestyle and blog articles may be written in the first person. Use a humorous approach, if appropriate, without offending any one group (religious, race, sexual orientation, income, social status, parenting style, etc.). Article submissions containing potentially offensive material will be rejected. Please be careful with sarcasm as not everyone can translate it.

Medical/Factual Articles:

Medical articles must be heavily sourced with statistics, interviews, quotes from experts if possible, and/or study results from reliable sources (e.g. reputable medical journals). Please note that we do not accept direct quotes from sources that are not expressly written by verified doctor, published in reputable medical journals, or other health resources. Direct quotes from doctors, nurses and other professionals are always a plus, especially if writing about medical topics. Please do not, in any way, change direct quotes. If you need to work around an error (grammar, usage, style, etc.), do so with the use of sub-text or by paraphrasing. You may want to also consider asking your source for a re-quote or clarification.

Articles should be between 700 and 900 words.

All non-personal essay type articles that contain facts must include references in MLA format. If the source is a website, please provide the link to the actual article.

Please make sure your article is unique, and not currently published in print, or online.

Try to keep the tone of your article upbeat and informative.

Do not use any special formats, colors, or fonts within your article. While it may look pleasing to the eye, it creates problems for us when placing your text into HTML format.

Please spell out abbreviations. This includes all numbers under 10, with the exception of weights and measures. Other instances where abbreviations should not be used include pounds, ounces, centimeters, etc.

Please use your real name. We like to give our writer's credit! Please include a short bio - and photo if you like - at the end of your article. Our readers will be delighted to know who you are!

Submitting your application does not guarantee it will be used. We will do our best to respond to all queries. Should we express interest, we will notify you via e-mail with our rates (per word) and agreement.

Thank you, and we look forward to working with you!
