Write For Us Equip, Encourage, Engage Arise Ministries Collective exists to equip and encourage women with Biblical truth so they are empowered to love God, love others, and live in radical and beautiful ways for Christ. If you believe in our mission and want to join our community of writers, we’d love to hear from you. Please take the time to read through our Statement of Belief. By submitting an article for publication, Arise Ministries Collective assumes you agree with this statement and adhere to the Christian values associated with it. Submission Guidelines Our community represents women of various ages and stages of life. They are married, single, mothers, students, professionals and homemakers. Our goal is to equip and encourage every one of them with Biblical truth so they can confidently engage in a life of service and submission to Christ. Arise editors are looking for pieces that highlight scripture, feature strong writing, are relatable, engaging, and bring glorify to God. Here are some other points to note, as well as some important requirements: We are looking for original pieces that haven’t been published before. If your work has been featured on a personal blog and you desire re-publication for the benefit of the Arise community, please let us know and include information about where it was previously published. Limit your submissions to one at a time. If you have written a series, up to three articles, essays, or devotionals will be considered. If your article is selected to publish, we reserve the right to proof it and may make minor edits. Ensure that your article is proofread and edited. We highly recommend having one or two people look it over before submitting. If there are too many errors, we won’t be able to select it. If you include direct excerpts from the Bible, please include the reference and note the version quoted from. For the sake of continuity for our readers, please use scripture quoted from the ESV, NASB, or NIV. ESV is our personal preference. Keep your article or essay between 500-1200 words. We will accept a 1500 word maximum. You do not have to have a blog or a large social media following to submit a post. We are happy to consider all well-written, compelling pieces that are grounded in Scripture. If you do not have a title for your piece, simply put “Title TBD.” Our editors may alter the title or add a subtitle without your prior consent. If your piece is featured, Arise Ministries Collective will credit you and link to your website (if you have one) as well as your social media forums. Likewise, we ask that you would post an excerpt on your blog and social media platforms on the day of publication – Linking to the Arise Ministries Collective website and our own social media platforms.
