about the preschool years?


We need you!


MOPS UK is looking for writers for the new MOPS UK website (

We are looking for articles:

  • Approximately 300 to 800 words long
  • Written from your own experience
  • Written in one of the following categories:


Stagessuggestions or first-hand anecdotes that pertain to a specific stage of the preschool years (for example, articles on teething, toilet training, weaning or the like)

Lifehumorous, encouraging or thought-provoking personal stories that will nurture the reader as a mother and/or woman and encourage her in her vital role. 

Askadvice on dealing with a particular situation or dilemma (for example, disagreeing with partner on how to parent, helping kids sleep through the night, getting more organised or handling sibling rivalry)

Keep in mind our average reader is a mother of a preschooler (baby through to end of nursery) and between the ages of 25 and 40, although we welcome and encourage content for mothers outside these demographics. MOPS UK seeks to meet the needs of every mum – urban and suburban mums, stay-at-home and working mums, teen, single and married mums – mums with different lifestyles who all share a similar desire to be the very best mums that they can be.

We will not publish or promote single opinions on controversial subjects that divide our readers. These include doctrinal, political and social subjects as well as parenting issues that bring up strong emotions. While the decisions that you’ve made for your family may come up in your submission, do not assume that all readers will see things the same way.

Email your submissions to Jolita Peterson, Include your name, contact information and a brief (1-2 sentence) bio on the first page of your submission. If accepted, posts will be edited by MOPS UK for length, grammar, content, style and tone. We do our best to respond to all submissions, but be aware we are sometimes inundated. If you haven’t heard back from us after 4-6 weeks, please assume we will not be able to use your submission.
