We are so excited to have you take this step!
You have a story to tell. If you have walked with Christ and He has brought you through struggles and into a renewed life, you have probably already started to share your story with others, whether through speaking or writing, or simply over a cup of coffee.
There are a few things we’d like you to do before filling out our guest writer application.
First, take some time to get to know what we’re about. It will make your submission more likely to hit the mark with our readers, and we’re all about wanting this to be a successful endeavor for you and our readers! If you haven’t already, take the time to read through each of the pages in the About Us section of our website. It will help you understand our beliefs, our approach, and our heart for our readers.
Second, make sure you are submitting only original work to us. You don’t need to already have a blog, but we’re thrilled if you do. We just ask that you submit articles only if you haven’t published them anywhere else. We try to make sure that all of our content on this website is completely fresh and unique, and aren’t replicated on other blogs.
Third, complete the application and submission form here. To do this step, first be prepared with your article, a way to scanned a signed contributor release so that it can be attached digitally (sometimes a photo of your document using a smart phone works!), and a digital face shot photo of yourself.
Keep your submission to less than 600 words. It’s hard to trim down when you have so much to say. Here are some suggestions if you’re struggling to keep within the word limit. First, pray about it. Let the Holy Spirit guide you on what readers need to hear, and perhaps what might be adding too much detail that takes away from the main point of your article. Second, consider whether you have one or more than one main point. If you have more than one, then chances are, your article might be split into two posts, both with more clarity in presentation.
Thank you so much for your passion in submitting your piece. Please know that we usually have quite a few articles waiting to be reviewed, and only a few hands to handle them. We will get to it as soon as we can, so please don’t think we have forgotten you. We just want to take our time and consider each application carefully.
We’ll contact you if your application shows that you are a great fit.
Thank you again. Bless you!
