WRITERS

Guidelines for writers

 

Introduction

We are always looking for new writers – men and women whom the Lord has gifted and called to write. For the next phase of the magazine, we require articles of international interest on topics showing Christians  how to apply the Christian faith to their business and professional lives. We want articles solidly based on scripture as we aim to have a constant stream of interesting material.

We require articles of international interest on topics showing Christians how to apply the Christian faith to their work-life and the marketplace.

Writers will be shortlisted to an approved list.

Who are our readers?

The Christian Business and Professional Magazine is targeted at Christians who either own their own business, work in a business or professionals ; basically Christians in the workplace or marketplace.

What to write: topics

The Christian Business and Professional Magazine accepts both fiction and non-fiction, full-length articles (between 1500 and 1800 words) on a variety of topics. The topics would be advertised mainly through our newsletter, so you are advised to sign up for the newsletter, to be kept abreast of future needs.

Before you write – our style

We would periodically inform you of the topics that we need writers for. Once you have decided on the topic that you want to write about the topic should be illustrated for the reader by way of lively dialogue and/or quotes to make the story stand out. It might also be useful to write in a conversational style. Our intention is to produce articles that are enjoyable, commanding and fluent in style. We are looking in particular for interesting, creative working.

Keep stories and articles exciting, fascinating and entertaining, including humour. A mixture of expository, descriptive and narrative writing are used in our articles. Make sure you give credit to others when you use their material.

 

Photos

Please include a photograph, usually a headshot, to accompany your story or article.  If your article is accepted and you have photos that may be used to accompany your submission, please attach them as jpeg files. Appropriate credit lines and captions should also accompany the photos.

You may also submit high-resolution digital images via e-mail.

Articles submitted with appropriate pictures, or for which pictures are available, receive highest priority. An article’s quality and readability are greatly enhanced by photographs of readers mentioned in the article and/or the article topic(s)., when this is appropriate for the subject matter
