Query: Hello everyone. My name is Matt Christensen, and I am a contributing writer for Fatherly. Fatherly is one of the most popular parenting websites in the world, with numerous awards, and nearly 15 million monthly readers. I’m currently looking for a therapist or similarly-qualified relationship expert who can offer some actionable, distinct tips and techniques through which couples can deepen their bond. As experts, what do you recommend? Why? How does it work? How would it look for the average couple in their day-to-day lives? Each tip/piece of advice should be actionable (“Do this…”), and provide genuine service and insight to the reader (“Here’s why it will help deepen your bond…”) Ultimately, I’m looking for 10-12 tips, but they can come from various sources. The more you can provide, the better, but don’t feel obligated to churn out a whole dozen by yourself. Here is a similarly formatted article I wrote to give you an idea of how the quotes/tips will be used: If you respond, please let us know how you would like to be cited in the article, and if you have any questions, please let me know. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Requirements: Please email replies and include your preferred citations.

Summary: Childhood Grief

  • Media Outlet: The Huntington News
  • Deadline: 11:59 PM EST – 10 December

Query: I’m working on an article about grief — more specifically, the effect of losing a parent during one’s youth. Growing up and undergoing a childhood and/or young adulthood without both parents takes an unknown toll on those experiencing it, and my editor wants to capture what some experts think about it. I hoped I could take just a few minutes of your time to chat about this issue.

Requirements: I’m looking for someone who specializes in grief counseling, childhood trauma, or something similar. Also, if you experienced the death of a parent while you were very young or know someone who did and may be willing to speak with me, that would be greatly appreciated as well.
