    Stellar Giveaways, A Call For Parent Writers And An Intro. To New Bloggers

    By New York Family


    Calling All Parents
    Who Like To Write!

    New York Family magazine is always looking to work
    with talented local parents interested in writing for magazines and websites.
    Depending on your level of experience, we have work-at-home internship
    opportunities for parents interested in cultivating their journalism skills,
    and more advanced opportunities (writing feature articles, blogging columns,
    etc.) for parents who already have the expertise. Whatever your experience
    level, these are especially good opportunities to write about subjects like
    health and fitness, education, green living, home design, travel, culture,
    special needs, weekend activities and of course parenting and family. For
    more info, send an explanatory letter about your interest and background to NY
    Family Editor Eric Messinger at [email protected].

    Skip Hop’s new Complete Sheet Collection should probably Skip_Hop1.jpgbe

    alternative. The four-piece set is 100% cotton and includes a sheet, nursery blanket,
    airflow wearable blanket and linen crib skirt. The sets come in charming motifs
    like Alphabet Zoo and Chocolate Lattice. And Skip Hop is giving away two sets
    of their Complete Sheet Collection to New

    readers. To enter, send us an email explaining why you’d like
    to win to [email protected]and put “Skip
    Hop” in the subject line. Be sure to include your contact info and address.

    Meet Our Newest

    This fall, we’ve added some promising new bloggers to our online
    roster. They have a diversity of backgrounds, talents and interests, and we
    think they’re all pretty great. Allow us to make a few quick introductions. Joe Wack is taking our Parenting In
    blog by storm. A writer and sketch comedian, he currently teaches
    science to elementary school children in the Bronx. He
    lives in Harlem with his wife and 3-year-old son and
    blogs about the joys and the uncertainties of parenting, always with a hint of
    wit. New to our Joy Of Shopping blog is independent media producer Mia Weber. Her passion for pop culture
    and fashion inspired her to start writing at sopresh.blogspot.com. She has a great eye, even better taste, plus
    a knack for finding new and noteworthy buys. Recently joining Born & Bred
    is Debra Flashenberg—a certified
    vinyasa yoga instructor who is now Director of the Prenatal
    Yoga Center,
    Prenatal & Postnatal. Debra writes mostly about childbirth, health and
    wellness. She is the proud mother of new baby boy, Shay. Also new to Born &
    is Angela Johnson, a freelance
    writer and stay-at-home mom living in Brooklyn. In the
    (very little) free time she has, she enjoys practicing yoga and baking, and
    also considers herself an amateur DJ. We’re constantly adding new contributors
    to our blogs. Stop by and see what they have to say! (Don’t just take our word
    for it.)
