$100 for Personal Essays on Motherhood

Juno is an online community and a digital magazine focused on pregnancy, childbirth, and motherhood. They’re on a mission to make pregnancy and motherhood less lonely. According to their website: “If you’re thinking about pregnancy, are about to give birth, just had a baby, or have a complicated relationship with motherhood, you’re in the right place. ”

They are currently seeking pitches for personal essays about motherhood, with a focus on urinary incontinence, as well as essays in general about motherhood.

These pitches are for essays 500 to 800 words long. If accepted, authors are paid $100 per essay. For the UI call for submissions, read this page.

According to their website, they’re seeking:

Creative, well-written, and specific stories about your journey toward motherhood. Maybe having a child yourself made you think about your relationship with your own mother in a new way. Maybe having a doula in the room helped you feel empowered during childbirth in a way you didn’t expect. Maybe changing your diet because of pregnancy inspired you to start cooking for yourself and you re-discovered the joy of food. Maybe dealing with postpartum UI during exercise didn’t stop you from winning a gold medal in your sport. We want stories that inspire confidence, give insight into this journey, and let others know that they’re not alone. Check out our first-person section for some good examples, and try not to pitch something we’ve already published. In addition to first-person narratives, we’re also looking for well-written and thoughtful reviews of specific prenatal and postpartum products (underwear, nursing bras, Kegel gadgets). We want to hear the good, the bad, and the ugly: What worked for you and what didn’t, and why?
