SOG Article and Review Pitch Guidelines
We currently accept unsolicited article or review pitches. All writing for Servants of Grace should reflect these core values.
Biblical: We are looking for content that is focused on a biblical text and is faithful to that biblical text.
Practical — Give us a plan for how to address a problem or issue in the Christian life or ministry. Diagnose the heart of the issue and root your application in the finished work of Christ. We are looking for practical, not pragmatic.
Devotional — We are looking for content that helps us treasure Christ more greatly, know him more deeply, and orient around his gospel. Biblical reflections, theological meditations, or spiritual illustrations. Help us enjoy grace and delight in God.
In addition to this we request that your content is:
- Local Church Promoting
- Culturally Winsome
- Mission Driven
- Within these parameters, there are lots of possibilities for topics and texts to explore. We are prioritizing the Christian ministry and the Christian life.
Suggested word length 300 to 2000 words.
- Align with the historic Christian faith as articulated by faith statements as the London Baptist Statement of 1689, the Westminster Confession, The Danvers Statement, and The Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy.
- Be clear and sound, but write with excellence and creativity.
- Solid and theologically sound ideas are a must, but solid ideas written excellently have best chance of publication.
