Editorial Guidelines

Editorial Guidelines

Northeast Ohio Parent magazine is the go-to resource for the parenting conversation. We bring local issues and stories to the readers, including topics on health, education, arts, home, community features and things to do. We do accept freelance writer queries or submissions. While we prefer local writers, we would consider others outside the region on a limited basis.


General Guidelines

We want stories to have sources with local connections to the community. It requires citing a minimum of three regional voices, whether it’s moms, experts, local business professionals, etc. Please read our publication before submitting a story or pitch. Word counts typically range from 500 to 1,200 words. Fees vary depending on length and type of story. We do not pay kill fees.



Our policy is to buy one-time exclusive print rights, along with electronic rights to allow stories to be placed on our website, northeastohioparent.com. We do consider reprinted articles outside our region.
