Welcome Writers! Are you interested in writing for us?
You have found the Focus on the Family editorial team’s most recent call-for-submissions page, along with where to send each article or pitch. (This does not mean to call Focus on the Family if you have a submission. “Call for Submissions” is the term used in publishing to let you know that submissions are being accepted for specific topics.) If you are new to our publication, you can order a subscription. You can also download our writers’ guidelines.
We do have a few ongoing writing needs. To find out more about them, scroll to the bottom of this page. If you have an idea that is outside of our call for submissions and want to send us an unsolicited query or article, send it to [email protected].
Topic: We always accept hands-on, practical ideas for parenting kids. Think about the most unique thing you did that worked, or what you were surprised worked, or what you did to help your children better understand how to accept responsibility, calm their emotions, become motivated, mature in some way or draw closer to God.
Word count: 50 to 300 words
Rights: First nonexclusive rights
Payment: $50, on acceptance
Due date: None; this is an ongoing call
Byline: Yes — whether in print or online
Audience: Parents with children in the home (these need to be practical, hands-on articles that you or someone you know have done and that other parents can immediately try)
Submission: Each article must be directed at only one age group. Depending on which age group you are writing about, here is how your article should be submitted: [email protected] (for parents of 0- to 3-year-olds), [email protected] (for parents of 4- to 7-year-olds); or [email protected] (for parents of 8- to 12-year-olds) and put “Attn: Family Stages” in the subject line.
Format: Include your contact information and article within your email. NO ATTACHMENTS are accepted for these short articles. Do not worry about formatting.
Acceptance/Rejection: If an editor has not contacted you within eight weeks of your submission, then we have decided not to use your article at this time. Thank you for submitting it, and we will look forward to working with you another time.
Topic: Who would you enjoy reading about? Let us know if you’d like to know more about Christian book authors, inspirational musicians, or folks in the Christian film-making business. What about a Pakistani woman who left Islam and narrowly escaped being stoned for her Christian conversion?
Word count: 200 (a short description of the idea, not the entire article please)
Due date: None; this is an ongoing call
Audience: Married Christians
Submission: Send ideas to [email protected]. Put “Attn: Profiles” in the subject line.
Format: Include your contact information within your email. NO ATTACHMENTS are accepted. Do not worry about formatting.
Acceptance/Rejection: If an editor has not contacted you within eight weeks of your submission, then we have decided not to use your idea at this time. Thank you for submitting it, and we will look forward to working with you another time.
