We are dedicated to having a diverse and inclusive team of contributors published on East Valley Moms, ranging from marital status, to socio-economic status, to ethnicity, to religious diversity, and our contributor pool should reflect this.   

Ideal contributors are those who enjoy exploring the East Valley with their kids, who love an adventure across town with their mini-me’s, and who is the mom in your friend circle always asked for tips for kid-focused recommendations.  

We’re looking for moms who want to join us in exploring their own city, their neighboring cities, and have the time and energy to commit to exploring with us and creating new friendships across East Valley Moms.

What it takes

We look to our volunteer contributor team to help EVM grow in breadth (by sharing, liking, and engaging online) and in-depth (with your awesome writing and insights!). 

It takes exploring the East Valley, and forming ideas and a point-of-view for providing tips, insights and advice for other parents exploring the area. It takes a heart for building up our local mom tribe and connecting with moms in the area.

Being a contributor on the team also requires you to create content and share your thoughts, opinions and family story on our online platform—it also requires you to be available for our contributor meet-ups and live events.

Content submitted should all fit within our published editorial guidelines and CMN guidelines. 

Interested in becoming part of EVM? Fill out the form below and we’ll be in touch!

I’m not much of a writer but want to be part of the team; what can I contribute?

We’re seeking a calendar coordinator to manage our free events calendar! If you have a heart for local moms and a love for finding all the fun, FREE events, apply here

The calendar coordinator will start off as a volunteer position with the opportunity to transition to a paid position after six months. 

The calendar coordinator will be part of our team, but not tied to the same writing requirements, instead they will manage our events calendar specifically. 

So what’s next in the application process?

  • Fill out the application below and be sure to include your writing sample.
  • Applications close 12/30/23
  • Watch for updates via email. Once we close submissions, we’ll let you know that we’re on the way to bury ourselves in all of your content. All ongoing updates will be sent by email as well!

Thank you for your interest in being an East Valley Moms Contributor!

Why Our Contributors Love East Valley Moms:

Are you unsure if East Valley Moms would be a good fit for you? Read what our current contributors love about being a part of our team:

I have gained a new appreciation for self- care. The meetups, group chats, and retreat have made me laugh when I wanted to cry, relax in the midst of chaos, and gain a new appreciation for being a mother. Writing has giving me a voice in a world that sometimes to silences us.

-Tiffany, writer for 2 years

I started following EVM on Instagram and when they posted their contributor call for new writers, I stepped out of my comfort zone, applied and was super excited when I was chosen! I got involved and connected with the other ~20 women in the group. These women welcomed me with open arms and it just felt so easy. It seemed so natural to connect with other moms, all who have slightly different stories but overall, still moms who “get it.” I didn’t feel alone anymore!

-Chrissy, wrote for 3 years before moving home to New Jersey 

EVM has not only given me a creative outlet, but I’ve made some really wonderful friends, too. Finding a supportive community is hard and I’ve found that here. 

-Cara, senior writer for 6 years

I’ve been a contributor for EVM for the past 5 years. I truly love the community I get to be in with other moms who may have different perspectives, but are still right next to each other in this crazy parenting journey! It’s also been super cathartic for me personally to get to write about my motherhood experience which forces me to get very reflective and honest about some of the deeper or harder spaces in my life. It’s like therapy, but funner! 

-Megan, writer for 5 years
