Contributor Guidelines


Mamamia is always looking for interesting, thought-provoking, well-written posts to share with our network and promote across our platforms.

If you want you write for Mamamia, here is what you need to know:

Understand that we get pitched a lot of posts and as much as we would love to, we are not able to use everything we receive.

Recognise that sometimes we have to decline posts because of their content or quality and sometimes because we have too many posts on a specific topic.

Note that this is professional website, which means your work will go through an editing process and may be published in a slightly amended format. This includes our choice of headline, final copy and images.

When submitting a post, please provide the following:

Any relevant links and images (including photos of the people who are being described in your story, where possible and appropriate).

A biography of 2-3 sentences and a high-resolution headshot of the author (unless you are submitting anonymously, if this is the case please make that clear in your submission).

The text of the post should be copied in the body of the email AND attached in a word document. Please aim to keep posts between 600-1000 words.

Rules regarding payment for written work:

Mamamia provides payment for original work along standard industry lines. This rate varies depending on the writer, however (as it does with any other type of media).  “Original work” means the post cannot have been previously published elsewhere, including on a personal blog. You may of course submit a post from your blog via a link but note that payment does not apply to work already published.

We are always looking to publish quality work that has been written to promote a cause (such as a charitable event). We donate more than $1.6m in space to such content per year across our network.  We do not provide additional payment for this work.

If you are not seeking payment for your work, please note this in your correspondence.

Please send submissions through to: submissions [ at ] mamamia [dot] com [dot] au.

Unfortunately due to the high volume of submissions we receive, only applicants with successful submissions will be contacted.
