Write for Us
Thank you for your interest in writing for us!
We think three main components are needed for a Her.meneutics article to succeed:
- A timely hook, such as an article, book, cultural trend, or person.
- A personal anecdote that connects the timely hook to the writer's experience or someone else's story.
- A theological lens or faith angle, so that the reader walks away better equipped to think Christianly about her or his world. It helps to bulk up your piece by referencing thinkers and writers from the past who have thought about your topic. It helps to ask, What are the theological implications for this line of thinking?
Please familiarize yourself with our past content, found in our archives . And please tell us a bit about yourself—your background as a writer, and your credentials for writing on your topic of interest. We look for articles between 800 and 1,000 words long. We prefer original content but do accept reprints and book excerpts.
Our reprint rights grant that you may publish your Her.meneutics post in its entirety on your personal website. We ask, however, that you not publish the post in its entirety on a third-party site. Third-party sites are, however, free to excerpt the first paragraphs of your post followed by a link to the original Her.meneutics post.
We try respond to all inquiries, but do understand that we are sometimes inundated. If you have not heard back from us within three weeks, please assume that we will not be able to use your idea or submission.
Submit an article pitch stating your idea below. If accepted, we'll contact you about how to submit your full article.
