Where single parents thrive—together.

Singlewith is a digital media company providing smart content and social networking to single mothers and fathers.

Mission Statement

Singlewith strengthens American families by providing the information, inspiration and community that single parents need to thrive. As part of our goal of supporting the growing number of Americans who are single parents, we aim to change the national conversation around single parenthood, motherhood and fatherhood. Our high-quality content demonstrates and promotes our two core values and beliefs: (1) Single parents can be great parents. (2) Single fathers and single mothers are equally capable of both nurturing and supporting their children.

Founder: Louise Sloan

Louise Sloan blueshirt headshotEditor and writer Louise Sloan is the single mom of an 8-year-old boy and the author of Knock Yourself Up, a memoir and report on choosing single motherhood.

Louise has been editor-in-chief of the custom content divisions at major mass-market   magazine publishers including Gruner + Jahr USA Publishing and American Express Publishing. She has produced original content for clients like Target, Nordstrom, GlaxoSmithKline and  Dr. Phil. For a portfolio of her earlier writings and custom content work, check out louisesloan.com,

As a writer and editor, Louise Sloan has specialized in health, psychology, social issues, op-eds and essays at publications like Glamour, The New York Times, Ladies’ Home Journal, Ms., Out, The Huffington Post, Salon.com and Health.com. But she’s done her share of fashion, home decorating and entertaining copywriting, silly quizzes and snarky web posts.

Knock Yourself Up received international media attention (Newsweek, Fox morning show, Nightline, London Times, 60 Minutes, Cosmo, Redbook, Salon.com, Jezebel, radio stations in Ireland and more), suddenly turning Louise into an international expert on single motherhood.

Louise’s editorial work has won national awards, including the 2010 James Aronson Award for Social Justice Journalism, the 2011 Clarion Award from the Association for Women in Communications, 2011 and 2012 Eddie Bronze awards from Folio Magazine.

Other random credits: Nightclub singer in Florence, Italy. Salsa performer. Theater lighting technician. Country-Western backup dancer for Joan Rivers. (No, really. She has pictures.) These days, however, she spends most of her time at youth sports events, as your basic soccer mom. She and her little athlete live in Brooklyn, New York.

The Singlewith Team

We’ve got an amazing group of writers – just look around the site! A few of our regulars include:  Chad Milner, Sarah Tuttle-Singer, Erik Ness, Christine Coppa and Andrea Arterbery. But we might just be looking for YOU. Contact us at info [@] singlewith.com, and let us know how you’d like to help out.

Site designer: Brad Miskell

Brad designed and built the prototype for Singlewith a while back and then left it in the hands of far less design and tech-savvy single parents. So if you like the design, it’s Brad – if there are technical glitches, don’t blame him. Singlewith, being a scrappy startup, couldn’t afford to keep him on as a staff creative director. But you could hire him. Web design and branding are among his many talents.

Brad’s intimidating list of creative credits include Broadway, MOMA, Yahoo and the New York Times. Read and see more at The Work of Brad. And listen to his gorgeous music (he’s a singer/songwriter, too) at Goodbye Carbon. Be sure to check out “Fall Into the Ocean,” his love song to the state of California, which, in our opinion, should be playing on every radio station in the country.
