Presbyterians Today Magazine Needs Articles for December Issue
Presbyterians Today magazine (est. 1867), published 10 times annually by the General Assembly Mission Council, needs non-fiction articles for the April 2015 issue. The theme is called, “Money.” This issue will explore the subject of money, as discussed in scripture and how it applies today as part of fundraising, investment, and stewardship to fund congregations. Articles will explore the motivation behind “giving” and how new prayerful communities can support themselves financially and responsibly.
Freelance writers can submit general interest articles or themed articles for this issue. All articles should connect to the Presbyterian culture or have a Christian viewpoint.
Articles examine common questions of religion, life, and beliefs, and help readers embrace their religious lifestyles and understand how church plays an important centerpiece in society. The magazine includes third-person narrative pieces, written for the layperson, to explain what Presbyterians believe in through engaging storytelling, profiles, interviews, devotionals, and commentary.
Editor Patrick David Heery will only consider non-fiction feature articles, both long (up to 1500 words), or short (up to 500 words).
Payment: negotiated between the freelance writer and editor, typically up to $300/feature. Also pays extra for photos, also negotiated.
