Join the Collin County Moms Writing Team for 2020

Are you a Collin County mama that enjoys creative writing? Do you want to find a unique way to connect with local moms? Are you eager to share your unique experiences or voice with fellow moms? 

At Collin County Moms {formally Collin County Moms Blog}, we are passionate about the Collin County community and the moms who live here. Our goal is to make this area of North Texas feel just a little bit smaller. By using both our website and social media outlets, we want to keep our readers up to date on family-friendly activities around town, provide advice on parenting and motherhood, and encourage everyone to get out and explore all that our wonderful county has to offer.

That’s where our contributing team of writers comes in!

We are looking for local women with fresh and diverse voices who are passionate about motherhood and who want to share their experiences with other women in Collin County and beyond. We’re committed in 2020 to creating a community where ALL moms feel welcome at the table, and we are expanding our writing team to give space to the voices we haven’t heard from yet.

Note :: You do NOT have to be a “blogger” to apply!

Interested in Becoming a Contributor?

We are excited that you would consider sharing your thoughts and experiences with our readers! Before you think more on the opportunity, please read the following guidelines and feel free to contact us with any questions.

Think LOCAL: We love to keep our content relevant to the Collin County area… or at least within driving distance for day trips and outings. Blog posts can feature places to go and things to do while more general topics {potty training, DIY, working, etc.} can be given a local twist simply because they are written by a local mom – YOU!

Think MOMS: It may sound obvious, but Collin County Moms’ target audience is made up of moms, so it only makes sense that our content remains under the broad category of parenting, within which you have a ton of subtopics to choose from. If you have an idea that interests you and your friends, our readers would probably love to read about it too!

Most Importantly: Write what you love, and love what you write!

As you consider what content to submit as a sample with your application, please think on these important guidelines:

  • Your sample submissions must be original to you, meaning, you are the author. Please keep copyright infringement laws in mind.
  • The submission with your application should be a sampling of your writing (500-600 words).
  • Content should be free from the following: profanity, sexual language, political endorsement of a party or candidate, political commentary, op-ed commentary on controversial social and/or political issues, and derogatory or inflammatory language.
