We are ready to invite a new group of writers to join our amazing existing team, and are so excited to share more about this instrumental volunteer role. 

 

Our team is full of locals who are passionate about building community, breaking down barriers, busting stereotypes, and connecting to other parents online and off. Learn more about what it takes to be on our team, and apply today!

FAQs: 

What do I get out of this?

Special team only events, a professional headshot, network marketing with other local writers, bloggers and small businesses, support in editing, training in social media, the opportunity to represent your community, and much much more!

Do I need to be a writer?

No! We want women and men with interesting lives, backgrounds, and perspectives on parenthood. We want people who are hungry to connect to others, who are eager to grow their personal support system, and who believe in the motto, “better together”. We can train you on blogging!

Do I need to be a mom?

Nope! We are hoping to grow by diversifying our team to include more voices on parenting and represent more unique family dynamics. Are you a dad? Step-mom? Grandmother raising your grandchildren? We’d love to hear about you and possibly include you on our team!

What is expected of me?

  • Submit one *fresh and unique* blog post a month (ideally 400-600 words long). (We do not accept previously published content.)
  • Have internet
  • Be on Facebook (for team communication and social engagement)
  • Be a good human
  • Commit to us for six months (June-December)
  • Be comfortable with social media and tech, generally

Do you give me topics, or do I come up with them on my own?

We have a calendar with topics you can use if you’re stuck, or you can bug our team for ideas, OR you can bring your own (we are flexible).

What do I write about?

We do ask that our posts focus on parenthood, partnership, friendship, and of course wine country (not necessarily all of those in every post, but at least one of them!).

Okay…How do I apply?

Woohoo! We LOVE this question. Application is super simple, all online, and linked below. This year, we are asking that all applicants include a previously unpublished blog post or written piece for us to review as your sample (you can include more if you want, but one is required). 

Your sample should be:

  • between 300-700 words (less is more!)
  • well-edited
  • topical to parenthood/wine country living
  • profanity-free

The application process is a bit fast and furious, and we don’t want you to worry about your first submission! If we take you on, we will use THIS sample blog post as your first June submission (so it truly has to be unpublished) so you can focus on learning the how-to! Fill out the form below, and…

 

Applicant Deadline:: MAY 21st, 2017
