The Charleston Moms Team is growing and we are currently looking for fresh, local voices who are passionate about our city and interested in sharing their stories!

General writing guidelines

We so appreciate you taking the time to contribute your thoughts, experience, and inspiration to the Charleston Moms readers! Before you begin typing away, please read the following guidelines, and feel free to contact us with any questions.
  • Think LOCAL: We love to keep all of our content relevant to the Charleston area…or at least within driving distance for day trips and outings. Articles can feature places to go and things to do while more general topics {feeding, potty training, DIY…} can be given a local twist simply because they are written by a local mom – YOU!
  • Think MOMS: It may sound obvious, but our target audience is made up of moms, so it only makes sense that our content should remain under the broad category of parenting writing, within which you have a ton of subtopics to choose from – the experience of being a mom, stages and phases of development, tips and tricks, home management strategies specific to moms, and of course, all the locally-focused ideas mentioned earlier. At the end of the day though, we are all moms just trying to make our lives a little bit more enjoyable. If you have an idea that interests you and your friends, then our readers would probably love to read about it too!
  • Think CONNECTIONS: We encourage you to think critically about ways to engage your audience. Try to include clever and catchy post titles that draw people in or spark curiosity, and give your readers a reason to comment by asking questions – ‘So tell me, what is the most awful potty training experience you have ever encountered?’
  • Most Importantly: Write what you love, and love what you write!

What are you waiting for?
