Write for Sunday| Magazine
Want to write for Sunday| Magazine? We’d love to have you.
Sunday| Mag is a free online magazine for those involved in the creative process of Sunday mornings at their church. We cover six aspects of the process:
- Creative Process
- Visuals and Design
- Tech and Production
Our focus is the weekend service.
In order to save your time and give your piece the best chance of making it onto SundayMag.tv, we ask you do three things. (1) Email us first to pitch us the idea for your article, (2) familiarize yourself with current content on the site, and (3) review the writing guidelines below.
We will accept finished articles, but we can’t guarantee we will publish every submission we receive. Pitching to us allows us to help you craft your thoughts early and form it into something that will work well for the magazine.
Sunday| Magazine looks for articles that are philosophical enough that they can reach a church of any size, but practical enough that the reader can make a conscious change to the way they do ministry after reading. This means we rarely cover specific gear like sound systems or musical instruments.
The exception to this would be a new technology, app, or product that would be of interest to the majority of our readers.
We look for articles with the following qualities:
- Clarity and quality of writing.
We love reading articles that are fun and filled with stories and examples we can relate to.
- Encouraging in nature.
We want to provide hope and the opportunity for change to our readers. It’s easy to point out problems; we want to point out solutions.
- Theologically sound, but denominationally neutral.
We realize many people believe different things. But if included or referenced in the article, we prefer concepts and doctrines that are broadly accepted.
All writers write on a volunteer basis, in exchange for exposure via their byline.
How to Submit
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief summary of what you’d like to write about. Include applicable illustrations or stories so we can get an idea of where you’ll take the article.
Also include what section of the site you think your article will fit into:
Currents Article — Timely and newsworthy content that applies to creative thinkers in the church. These articles don’t have to be tutorials or deep thought pieces. They should contain content that is of interest or has entertainment value to the Sunday| Mag audience. Word count: 300-500 words.
Issue Article — Timeless content that is more philosophical in nature and much more developed. These articles should remain relevant two to three years from now. If writing for the issue, please indicate which of the six sections you’re writing for: creative process, visual, worship, leadership, tech, or communication. Word count: 600-1000 words.
Note: We can’t and won’t publish every submission due to limitations on space, editorial scope, and quality. Our first priority is the site
