Who We Are and What We Do

Faithfully Magazine is a news and culture publication with a special focus on Christianity. Although we publish a variety of content, our primary focuses are issues, conversations, and events Christians of color say are important to their faith and to their lives.

Our articles have been cited by publications such as The Washington Post, Vulture, Religion Dispatches, Christianity Today, The Federalist; The Christian Post, Religion News Service, Missio Alliance, WNYC, Fortune Magazine’s “Race Ahead” Newsletter, and others.

Payment

We pay up to $300 USD, depending on originality, depth of reporting, and well-researched analysis of articles accepted for publication. Although we work with new writers, our time limits us to working with writers whose clips show they are well-practiced in their craft.

Pitching

Please pitch us your idea first, instead of sending a completed article draft. We may ignore submissions that bypass this requirement.

Your pitch should state what you want to write about, anticipated length, why it’s worthwhile, who you would interview (if necessary), and your qualifications as the writer — which means you must include a brief bio about yourself and your relevant experience along with links to, or attachments of, 2-3 previously published articles and your most relevant social media profiles.

Unfortunately, we are not able to reply to every pitch. If you do not hear from us within three days, it’s safe to assume we have passed on your pitch.

In some cases, pitches that do not fit the editorial scope of the publication or are explicitly promotional will be referred to our Media Kit, or ignored.

Publication

Here’s a rundown of the kinds of articles we consider for publication.

Features: These in-depth articles involve a unique or arresting angle, compelling storytelling, insightful information. Features can be about any topic, event, trend, person/group, etc. as long as these articles have a Christian angle. These are the articles we pay the most for—$300. Word length varies.

Opinion and Analysis: These articles, usually written in “plain language” by subject experts and reflecting extensive research, present particular perspectives on a popular or fundamental subject backed by extensive support for those views as well as constructive analysis. Average article length ranges from 1000-1200 words. We pay $150 for these article.

Commentaries: These opinion articles and personal essays (not the same as “Opinion and Analysis”) may fall in our “Inspiration” section and generally include timely cultural/entertainment, social, or political commentary, with a faith angle. We pay $100 for commentaries that are well-written and timely. Length varies.

News Digest and Trends: We publish daily news stories and trend articles that are likely to be the talk of the day (or week). These are usually researched and summarized articles (rewrites) pulled from various sources that fall between 400-500 words. We pay 10 cents/word for these quick submissions.

Insightful Q&As: These interviews are with newsworthy, influential and/or well-informed individuals. A Christian angle is not always 100 percent a feature of these Q&As, but in most cases it is. These interviews should be meaty, but not long. Payment varies.

Profiles: Our “Profiled” section includes semi-biographical sketches highlighting the notable work, accomplishments, or testimony of a living Christian individual. Word length is 500-800 words for these inspiring articles that usually require a brief interview with the subject. Payment varies.

Historical Biographies: Our “Remember” section is about just that—remembering the contributions of historical Christian figures (usually Christians of color; or Christians who contributed greatly to the advancement or well-being of people of color). These research-based articles are 500-800 words long. Payment varies.

Guidelines

Assuming pitches are approved, draft submissions must be well-written, engaging, and free of plagiarism and typographical errors. Although writers should self-edit submissions, all accepted content will be edited for clarity, accuracy, house style, and SEO when necessary. Writers must include URLs for sources where possible via hyperlinking.

Help Keep Christian Media Diverse

Faithfully Magazine began in 2016/2017 with the mission to keep Christian media diverse by centering our content on Christian communities of color for an ethnically-inclusive audience. In that time, we’ve made an impact on Christian media and achieved meaningful milestones — such as creating a volunteer Associate Editor role, launching an Editorial Fellowship, and proudly paying our contributing writers. But we need your support to keep going. In addition to partnering with advertisers, nurturing a subscription/membership, and exploring paid live events, we rely on the generosity of readers who see value in our work and in our mission. We invite you to join us, and keep walking with us, in our mission. Every amount, big or small, empowers us to stay the course.
