Playtimes works with professional freelance writers. If you are interested in being considered, please send us an email through our contact form and include “Freelance writing opportunities” in the subject line. In your email, please tell us a little bit about yourself and your writing experience, and offer at least one pitch that you think would be a good fit for our specific Playtimes audience. Please attach several samples of your published work.
Please do not send unsolicited manuscripts. Feature articles are assigned to writers by the editor.
If you’d like your child to be considered for upcoming Playtimes modelling opportunities, please email us through the contact form and include your child’s name, date of birth and a few recent snapshots.
We’re looking for happy kids who enjoy being in front of the camera. Just as important, we look for parents who are easy to work with.
Our models are typically between three years and ten years old. Kids younger than three, as parents will know, are quite unpredictable, tire easily, and aren’t always able to follow instructions. By three, though, the ones who enjoy modelling can eagerly hold a pose, take direction and enjoy the process of playing dress-up and prancing unabashedly about before our team, which includes the photographer, stylist, editor and assistants.
We receive far more enquiries than we have slots available, so it’s the lucky few who are selected. Each month we’re working towards a different theme, which requires a different mix of models. Some months we need younger kids, some months older. Some months we need boys, other months it’s girls. And, it’s entirely possible that the month we contact you, you’ve already got holiday plans that can’t be changed. Luck and flexibility play important roles.
