Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood
Submission Guidelines: Photos

We seek photos that offer unique perspectives on motherhood. These might be shots of people, places, and things, or they might be shots that reflect milestones, growth, and tradition. We like photos that are artful, versus those that appear staged, and that encourage us to reflect.

We maintain a library of photographs and strive to match the image to the piece of writing—whether that writing is fiction, nonfiction, a literary reflection, or a blog post. Therefore, we encourage you to read our magazine and the submission guidelines for each department to better understand our tone, style, and message.

Please submit up to three original, previously unpublished photos at a time. Each should be submitted with a short bio, a brief artist’s statement or commentary about the image, and a link to your website or blog. Send photos as low resolution jpgs (approximately 1024 pixels). No watermarks, please. Submit your photos to lmphotos (at) literarymama (dot) com.

We credit the photographer and link to the photographer’s website. Photographers retain all rights to photos. We're a non-paying market, but our readership and our social media communities are worldwide. Your photo will be published to a wide array of Literary Mama audiences. We love to work with amateur photographers who are looking for exposure.
