Has anyone worked with Iparenting.com or their related publications (Health and Fitness, do!)? I've Googled them and they seem like a solid company, but it doesn't hurt to talk to other writers.

I'm looking for lead times and how soon they will publish a manuscript after it's been accepted. If anyone has a link to a set of writer's guidelines OTHER than what's on their website, I'd appreciate it. The online version of Writer's Digest does not have a listing.

Thanks,

Funny you should mention them...

Just last week I sent a query to the email address listed on the guidelines page on the website. Not only was the article I submitted accepted, but one of my suggestions was accepted as well. (This was for the Family Finance section). I was pleasantly suprised, as I'm used to waiting 2 to 3 months for a response -- and usually only receive one after following up.

The editor sent me an agreement with word count, guidelines, etc. for that particular article. Payment terms were net 30 (upon acceptance). Can't complain so far...

P.S. My deadline for this 800 word article was June 15th and the publishing date was scheduled for the beginning of August.
