Writing for Us

The mission of Stepfamily Magazine is to be the leading publication in helping all stepfamilies create a better everyday life. We accomplish this by providing our readers and subscribers with the highest quality, research-based practical tools, educational insight, professional recommendations, and interactive forums to empower them to navigate their unique family dynamic. Through our inclusive, comprehensive content and events, the magazine seeks to inspire a new stepfamily narrative and empower stepfamilies of all back-grounds, cultures, family structures, sexual orientations, gender identities, and religions.

Since its launch in February 2016, Stepfamily Magazine has become a top resource for stepfamilies seeking support and advice.
