Write for Natural Family Online magazine

Natural Family Online magazine is not just another natural parenting magazine. We’re a bridge for mainstream families to natural parenting, making natural approaches to family living accessible to parents who don’t consider themselves to be “crunchy granola.” Natural Family Online shows parents how easy and natural it is to fold simple, holistic practices into their daily family lives -- yet we provide enough depth for self-proclaimed “natural parents” as well.

Natural Family Online is currently seeking articles focusing on tips, tools and strategies for implementing natural parenting on a daily basis. Our readers want to know what makes natural parenting practices beneficial, why they should use them and how they can add natural parenting to their own family lives. We are not looking for “warm fuzzy” articles about breastfeeding, cosleeping or other AP/natural parenting practices. Think tips and tools, and you will be on the right track.

Topics we cover include:

· Breastfeeding (emphasizing extended BF, tandem BF and so on; not BF how-to’s)
· Co-sleeping, the family bed and night-time parenting
· Babywearing
· Nutrition and healthy cooking, including vegan and vegetarian diets and organic and whole foods
· Attachment parenting
· Natural pregnancy and childbirth
· Educational alternatives, including homeschooling and unschooling
· Health care alternatives (emphasizing child and family health issues)
· Cloth diapering and elimination communication/infant potty training
· Ecological practices, including recycling and food gardening

Articles and essays should range between 500 and 1,000 words. Articles for Natural Family Online should be well researched, factual pieces. No pseudo-science, please; we expect references for scientific facts you cite or claims that you make. Queries are appreciated and prevent you from writing a piece we may already have covered. Send queries and submissions to [email protected]. Please include your submission in the body of your e-mail; unsolicited attachments will not be accepted.

Thank you to all who are interested in reviews! At this time, all product, book, and website reviews will be handled by long-term NFO contributors.

Rights and reprints
Natural Family Online accepts first electronic rights for original articles. You retain full reprint rights after 30 days. We request archival rights for one year; unless prior arrangements are made, submissions will be archived for that period. We reserve the right to reject any query or submission without explanation. We reserve the right to re-title, modify, edit for length and clarity, abridge and/or fact-check any material that it accepts for publication. We accept reprints for articles to which you hold the copyright; when submitting, please include the piece’s publication history.

We reserve the right to use any photographs that are accepted on Natural Family Online and in any marketing materials in any media now and in the future.

Natural Family Online magazine is not a paying market at this time. We provide broad internet exposure for your business or writing career and a place to exercise your creative energy and passion for natural parenting. Article and essay contributors receive a byline and biographical note with their article as well as a link(s) to their family-friendly personal or business web site(s). Review and poetry contributors receive bylines. Natural Family Online does not provide kill fees for accepted or assigned stories that are not published.
