Lately there has been so much transpiring around the world regarding religious beliefs, here are 10 Religious sites that pay to publish your convictions and understandings. If you wish to share your ideas, but are not really a writer, please feel free to make use of our transcription services.
10 Religious sites that pay
1. The Christian Century
At the Christian Century, we seek to articulate the public meaning of faith, bringing the resources of religious tradition to bear on such topics as poverty, human rights, economic justice, international relations, national priorities, and popular culture.
We are also interested in pieces that examine or critique the theology and ethos of individual religious communities. We welcome articles that find fresh meaning in old traditions and that adapt or apply religious traditions to new circumstances.
Authors should assume that readers are familiar with main themes in Christian history and theology, are accustomed to the historical-critical study of the Bible, and are already engaged in relating faith to social and political issues. Many of our readers are ministers or teachers of religion at the college level.
2. First Things
First Things is happy to accept unsolicited manuscripts. Writers should familiarize themselves with the magazine before sending their submission, and include with it a cover letter giving their thesis, an explanation of why it’s an important thesis to argue in this magazine, reference to any similar articles the magazine has published recently, and a short biography. We do not accept simultaneous submissions of manuscripts or poetry. An honorarium is paid upon publication.The word limits (which should be adhered to strictly) are:
- Opinions: 1,000 to 2,000 words
- Feature Articles: 2,500 to 4,000 words
- Book Reviews: 1,250 to 1,500 words
The Forward and Yiddish Forverts regularly accept submissions from outside contributors. The best guide to our style and content is our newspapers and websites themselves; the best way to figure out what we’re looking for is to read them. Here are some additional details to assist you in pitching stories to our editors.
Fees differ depending on the intended medium, section and the work in question. Your editor should inform you of the rate upon commissioning your work. (If he or she does not, feel free to ask.) In the event that a written work accepted for publication is not used, the writer generally will receive 50 percent of the agreed-upon fee.
Contributors are paid by electronic transfer (ACH) to their designated bank accounts, where available, and elsewhere by PayPal, or as a last resort, by check.
GrokNation is a communal space where we can read, discuss, explore, learn and truly understand the issues that shape our modern lives: from the social impact of pop culture to the importance of human connection, from causes that help to heal communities large and small to the challenges of raising the next generation of activists. Smart and passionate, with a quirky sense of humor and an unapologetic nerdiness, GrokNation is a place for people of all ages and backgrounds – this means you! – to spend time thinking deeply about things that matter, trying to “grok” them.
5. Image Journal
We welcome unsolicited submissions and consider all submissions carefully. Because of limited staff time, we’re not able to guarantee personalized feedback, but please know that we’re grateful to each writer who takes the risk of sharing work with us. We produce two publications: Image, a quarterly journal, and Good Letters, a daily blog.
All the work we publish reflects what we see as a sustained engagement with one of the western faiths—Judaism, Christianity, or Islam. That engagement can include unease, grappling, or ambivalence as well as orthodoxy; the approach can be indirect or allusive, but for a piece to be a fit for Image or Good Letters, some connection to faith must be there.
Leben is a quarterly, four-color magazine that tells the stories of the Protestant Reformers and those who have followed in their footsteps through the ages. We are a popular history publication that aims at a general readership.
Those interested in writing for Leben should read through several articles on our website.
We are published by City Seminary of Sacramento, California, and so we do have a slightly parochial slant toward the German Reformation, due to our historical lineage, but articles about the Swiss, Dutch, Scottish, English, Hungarian and other reformation movements are all of interest to us.
We are not a theological journal, per se, i.e. while we have a perspective, our articles do not expressly deal with theological propositions. There are many publications devoted to discussing theology, we focus on the people and events that make up the Reformation tradition.
Above all, articles should be interesting to a general readership, seeking to bring alive the events and personalities of a particular period. Avoid being preachy and moralizing. Again, there are places for those kinds of articles, but that is not our mission. Most of our readers can draw their own conclusions without being force-fed. Tell a good, well-researched and historically accurate story.
To have freelance manuscripts considered for publication in Liguorian magazine, please observe the following guidelines:
Articles must not exceed 2,200 words. Personal essays should be limited to 1,000. Fiction submissions should be approximately 2,000 words. Style and vocabulary should be popular and readable. Use an interest-grabbing opening, state why the subject is important to readers, use examples, quotes, anecdotes, make practical applications, and end strongly.
Liguorian does not consider simultaneous submissions or articles previously accepted or published.
Seasonal articles and stories must be received 8 months in advance.
Manuscripts should be submitted electronically via e-mail attachment in Microsoft Word to firstname.lastname@example.org or on CD to Liguorian, Attn: Managing Editor; One Liguori Drive, Liguori, MO 63057. Please indicate the word count of your submission and the category intended: personal essay, or feature and whether it is fact or fiction. Be sure to include your full name, address, phone number, and e-mail address.
8. The Lookout
The Lookout is a 16-page, full-color weekly magazine from Standard Publishing with a circulation of about 40,000.
We are designed to provide Christian adults with true-to-the-Bible teaching about current topics to help them mature as believers and live in the world as faithful witnesses of Christ.
The Lookout publishes from a theologically conservative, nondenominational, and noncharismatic perspective. It is a member of the Evangelical Press Association.
Our emphasis is on the needs of ordinary Christians who want to grow in their faith rather than on trained theologians or church leaders.
RELEVANT covers faith, culture and intentional living. Our readership is culturally savvy, mainly Christian 20 and 30somethings who are looking for purpose, depth and spiritual truth. Our mission is to challenge people to go further in their spiritual journey, live selflessly and intentionally, care about positively impacting the world around them, and find the unexpected places God is speaking in life, music and culture.
Submissions for online publication should be no more than 1,000 words in length and should directly address the intersection of faith and justice. Before submitting, please acquaint yourself with our material. We reserve the right to edit for length and clarity. Please email finished submissions for online publication to our submissions editor with the words “submission” in the subject line. Include a one- or two-sentence biography and a headshot.
