From the Birmingham Parent guidelines:

We look for journalists who share our vision and demonstrate a fresh, engaging writing style, have a keen sense of our readers’ interests, do appropriate research to provide factual information using the highest journalistic standards, understand the importance of attribution and focus specifically on topics that matter to families in our community.

To provide families with resources that matter to them, articles may include family-related topics ranging from health, education, news, community development, senior living, home décor, family pets, cooking, fitness, parenting, relationship counseling, child care and general human interest stories.

We ask writers to use local experts who are authorities in their field. To ensure we remain family-focused, every article should include a local family or parent “voice.”
