Want to write for Neue Quarterly or NeueMinistry.com? Here’s how:
We are looking for a wide range of features covering personal experiences that impacted your life and ministry, “how to” stories, practical ideas for worship, ministry and mission or resource reviews. We are also interested in articles dealing with theological perspectives and Q&As with ministry leaders or everyday servants doing something remarkable. Our audience is intelligent, culturally savvy and passionate about relating the message of Jesus to the world’s biggest issues today. We want the writing at Neue to reflect that to the highest quality.
NeueMinistry.com is split up into three main categories: Insight, Ministry and Worldview. The Insight category will be composed of articles from experienced leaders—people who have unique insight and experience–that will encourage and challenge new leaders in their faith, life and ministry. The Ministry section is for practical, equipping features that deal with issues like community, creativity, worship, practical ministry, discipleship and outreach. And, finally, the Worldview section will deal with cultural shifts, theological perspectives, global issues and profiles of ministry leaders.
An average feature will run 600-1000 words. Resource reviews 400-600 words.
Queries: Send a one-paragraph query to Adam Smith. Include a summary describing the article idea, an approximate length and date it could be finished. Email submissions preferred, please refrain from phone or fax pitches. [Note: You do not have to query a story idea before sending it in.]
Submissions: We prefer submissions as Word attachments. Your name and a one- to two-sentence bio should be included with your submission, as well as an author photo (for the online bio) if possible. Submissions to the website are on a donation basis (byline and bio are compensation). Articles are automatically archived. Please double-check spelling and grammar before submitting. All articles will be edited for length, grammar, content, style and tone.
