Submission Guidelines

Length: Approximately 1000 words plus relevant, high-quality color photos

Format: Place text in a MS Word document. Do not insert photos in the Word document. They must be sent as separate files (see Visuals guidelines below). Page numbers must be on each page. Keep at least one copy of your manuscript and photos for your files; we do not return manuscripts or photos.

A two-line biography of the author is requested. Please include: the author’s name, title (if applicable), organization (or church) and email address. A sharp bio photo is also requested.

Visuals: We welcome beautiful, engaging photos of people and activities that represent the meaning and feel of the article you’re submitting. Photos need to be in color and of good quality (in focus, with subjects well-lit and not too far from the camera). Set your digital camera on the highest quality setting when taking photos. Photos should be in a JPEG format, no smaller than 752 x 490 pixels. Photos of people who are recognizable must be accompanied by release forms. See Photo Release.
