Mommy Poppins Houston, TX

  • Expired: over a month ago. Applications are no longer accepted.
Job Description

Mommy Poppins, a nationwide parenting website, is inviting applications from talented freelance writers in and around the Houston area to cover family activities.

If you have an encyclopedic knowledge of your local family goings-on, or love research the best things to do in your area with kids, this is an opportunity to share your knowledge with other families.

We accept pitches. Ability to attend openings, activities and performances for coverage is a plus. We prefer to build an ongoing relationship with writers looking to contribute regularly.


  • Able to produce compelling, accurate and clean copy.

  • Good research and fact-checking skills

  • Available to cover family activities in person in your local area (when safe to do so)

  • Able to take postcard-worthy photos

  • Comfortable submitting content into CMS (content management system)

This is a work-from-home, freelance opportunity. Compensation is a flat fee per post.

How to submit:

Interested candidates should prepare 3-5 story ideas appropriate for Mommy Poppins articles. We are looking for your ability to come up with interesting topics covering local activity ideas for families, as well as traffic-driving local or national posts that fit the Mommy Poppins brand. Each pitch should include a headline and a sentence or two describing the idea. Choose one of your pitches to flesh out with an engaging lede paragraph and bullet points detailing what you plan to cover in the rest of the article.
