  • Include a 2-3 sentence bio, headshot image and social channels with your submission.
  • Upon submission, you are giving Big City Moms permission to be the exclusive publisher, to promote your post under your byline, to share it with our subscribers and social media followers, and you agree not to publish this post elsewhere, including your personal blog.
