Submit Your Stories, Photos, Poetry, Commentary and More to a Fresh, Bold & Exciting Publication
Have an original article or story idea you want considered for publication on faithfullymagazine.com and/or in Faithfully Magazine’s print edition? We accept submissions on a rolling basis for the website and have specific deadlines for the print edition. Read on to learn how to work with us.
What We Do
Faithfully Magazine is an ethnically-inclusive news and lifestyle publication that leans toward Christian communities of color. We center on issues, conversations and events Christians of color say are important to their faith and to their lives. We pride ourselves on our ecumenical approach as a “conscious” Christian magazine for the times. We serve our audience via this website, a quarterly magazine, podcast and newsletter.

What We Publish
We love insightful Q&As with influencers in any field, especially when there is a compelling faith angle. In addition to Q&As, we publish inspiring features on a variety of subjects, including ministry leaders, musicians, authors, etc. Another important aspect of Faithfully Magazine is our cultural, social and political commentary/columns, with a faith angle, of course.
We are also open to re-publishing well-written blog posts, publishing original devotionals, poetry, original photo essays, book excerpts, comic strips/sketches and more. In general, it’s best to pitch your idea to us first, instead of sending a completed article or work.
What We Do Not Publish
Although we publish content reflecting a variety of Christian viewpoints, as seen on our website and in the magazine, Faithfully Magazine does not publish content that is hateful, dehumanizing or attacks people, groups or organizations.
We embrace nuanced articles and commentary that grapple with the diversity of Christian thought on matters related to sexuality, relationships, justice, and life (abortion, the death penalty, euthanasia, etc.). We do not, however, publish content or advertisements that promote ethics, activities or values we as an organization believe conflict with a traditional/orthodox Christian worldview. The writers who work with us may not necessarily share the organization’s editorial and advertising position.
If you have specific questions about whether your pitch is a match for our readership, contact us via the email address listed below.

Our Specific Content Needs
In general, we welcome pitches for the following:
- Profiles on interesting people, places, ideas, events, experiences, etc. on a city, national or global level
- News articles/reports on national or global current events/issues
- Reviews of books, musics, movies, etc.
- Q&As with notable figures
- Commentary and analyses on education, incarceration, family, church life, theology, politics, etc.
- Travel and leisure experiences and how-tos
- Money and career advice
- Wellness articles about health, fitness, food, relationships, etc.
- Articles on historical topics tied to Christianity or short profiles on historical Christian figures
- First-person faith accounts (in some cases, these must be verifiable through others and/or documentation)
Submissions must be well-written, informative and engaging and free of plagiarism and typographical errors. If your work has been published elsewhere, let us know. We generally welcome content that is at least 300 words and no more than 2,500 words, but will make exceptions for some pitches.
Those interested in submitting content must provide clips/links of 2-3 published works. If you are an interested writer who has not previously been published, you must convincingly explain the who, what and why of your pitch. Those providing first-person testimonies must provide verification and/or contact information for others who can verify your story.
Although writers should self-edit submissions, all accepted content will be edited for clarity, accuracy and SEO-friendly headlines, if necessary. Writers must include URLs for sources where possible, and provide the names, publication titles, programs, etc. cited in article submissions.
Faithfully Magazine does not pay for submissions at this time. However, by working with us as contributors, you gain potential access to interview leading figures and influencers in U.S. Christianity, opportunities to cover live events, access to books, music, and other review materials (that you keep), and your byline in the only intentionally ethnically-diverse and ecumenical Christian publication that centers on believers of color. Most of all, you gain the opportunity to get in on the ground level of a transformative and groundbreaking publication that people are excited about.
