We’re currently looking for feature articles on the theme of “Vacation” for an upcoming issue of Christ and Pop Culture Magazine. We pay $50 for each magazine feature accepted and published. Send a one-paragraph pitch by noon Friday, June 5, to Erin@FillingMyPatchOfSky.com.

If we choose your article, we will need a full draft of the article by Thursday, June 11. You will also need to be available for revisions during the weekend after submission.

Please keep in mind that we are unable to respond to all pitches.

Guidelines

Your Pitch:

  • Do not send a full article for your pitch; we won’t have the time to read unsolicited pieces.
  • Keep your pitch to one paragraph. Include a thesis and some ideas about how you will develop your thesis throughout the piece.
  • Keep our audience in mind. We recommend reading a few of the magazine features we’ve published in the past to get a sense of the kinds of articles we run.
  • Be sure your article has a pop culture slant.
  • Include a two-sentence bio to help us understand why you would be qualified to write on this topic.
  • Include links to two or three articles that you have published, even if it is your own blog (but preferably at other publications).

Selected Pitches:

  • The finished article should be something more than just a long blog post. We’re looking for magazine-style, insightful, detailed, original, well-crafted pieces.
  • Pieces should be between 1,500–3,000 words.
