Because The New Mystique is not a lifestyle site, we appreciate candid and honest descriptions of your experience as a mother. We want our readers to feel a sense of “wow, me too” when visiting our site- not a sense of “wow, she has it all together and I don’t.” Share what you are struggling with and what you are learning. Bullet-point articles are welcome under the “Tips” category.

Article submissions should be between 800-1000 words and include a meta description for search engines and social sharing, which should be no longer than 160 characters. Articles should be original and unique in content, and have not been previously published on any other website.

We do not pay for contributed articles, but we will promote them as we do our own articles across our social media accounts.

If your article is selected, please note the following:

  • All articles are subject to editing.
  • Headlines and subheads are subject to change.
  • Content may be edited for style, tone, or substance.
  • Links may be added for context.
  • Images will be added at the discretion of The New Mystique editors.
