Would you like to share your thoughts on parenting in the city with the largest and fastest growing international parenting community in the Netherlands?

Amsterdam Mamas is always looking for interesting thought-provoking, well-written articles about parenting in the city to share with our community of readers.

What are we looking for?

The articles we publish must be relevant and applicable to Amsterdam Mamas' community - i.e., Amsterdam based. We focus on issues or stories that will be pertinent to families based in Amsterdam and the surrounding regions, not general parenting and travel pieces. Some possible topics are:

  • Education – specific to the Amsterdam education system

  • Family Travel – travelling with children internationally to/from Amsterdam

  • Family Life – all about raising a family in Amsterdam

  • Health and Wellbeing – raising a healthy family in Amsterdam

  • Pregnancy – the process of pregnancy and birth in Amsterdam

  • Out and About - exploring Amsterdam and the Netherlands

This list is not exhaustive and we welcome submissions from authors on other topics which they feel are relevant to our readers.

Submission Process

Send your pitch or submit your article for consideration to creative@amsterdam-mamas.nl. When submitting an article, please adhere to the following guidelines: 

  • Articles should be between 600-1000 words

  • We prefer getting articles in a Google Doc.  

  • Provide all relevant links as full URLs

  • If you would like to provide images, please ensure they are high-resolution and that you have the rights to use the images you submit. We prefer landscape orientation.

  • Provide a short biography of 2-3 sentences with relevant links (unless you are submitting anonymously – if this is the case please make that clear in your submission)

Due to the high volume of submissions, we are not able to use everything we receive. It is inevitable that sometimes we have to decline articles because of their content, quality, or because we have too many articles on a specific topic. Only applicants with successful submissions will be contacted, which might take up to 3 weeks. You are welcome to submit as many articles as you wish as long as they fall within our guidelines.

We reserve the right to tailor content to our readers. Therefore, as a professional website, be aware that your work will go through our editing process and if we feel it is necessary, we may publish your work in a slightly amended format. This includes headlines and copy.

Compensation

Amsterdam Mamas is run by a team of enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers who are passionate about Amsterdam and supporting the families in it. At this point, we do not compensate for articles that are submitted to us.

Advertising inquiries

Amsterdam Mamas does not accept contributor articles that simply advertise or promote a product or brand. If you would like to connect your business or brand to our community then we would love to discuss that further with you. Please contact promotions@amsterdam-mamas.nl so that we can talk to you about the options we offer.
