3 Places to Send Your Awesome Writing

Greenlake Arch, Seattle

If your words are overflowing–you know, with essays, poems or stories–and you’re looking for a place to share them, here are some ideas:

1.  Relevant (online) Magazine~Print and online
For 30 something’s and millenials, Relevant is quite a presence in the world of Christian journalism. They pay for print, but not their web edition. You can query them with your pitch ideas here for their site and the submission how-to’s if you’re feeling brave and awesome.
2. Windhover-a Journal of Christian Literature~Print publication
“The journal is dedicated to promoting poetry, fiction and creative nonfiction that considers Christian perspectives and engages spiritual themes. Each spring the journal hosts a writers’ festival, inviting their published authors and interested readers to come to campus for a weekend of workshops and presentations on the connection between faith and the arts.”
The editorial team considers unsolicited submissions of poetry, short fiction, non-fiction, and creative nonfiction received between February 1-April 15 and August 1-October 15. Journal information and submission process is here. Remuneration is the joy of being published.

3.   “Anchored Voices” is an online Christian community for encouragement and inspiration. 

From their “About” page: 

“We want to hear from you: to hear the voices of other women; to hear how God helped you through a struggle; breathed life through His Word; and helps you today as you walk through daily life.  Young, old, out in the workforce, at home with kids, single, or married, every age and stage of life is welcome to the table.” 

Submission information is HERE.

For an uber-complete list of print and online publications across all genres, Leslie Verner at Scraping Raisins has a comprehensive post HERE.

    Oh, if writing were only as easy as keyboarding. But then, we like the challenge, don't we. And the joy of finishing a typing exercise doesn't begin to compare to that of completing a poem or blog post!
