We are Welcoming New Voices to the Blog.

I am where I am today because others featured my writing. has been a creative nonfiction blog for the last 10 years. It was created to be a space to talk about faith, mental health, community, and lifestyle in general. Over time, it has morphed into a blog that meets young adults right where they’re at, with an encouraging word or an inspirational push in the right direction. Now it’s time to bring more stories into the fold.

My heart is to use this platform I’ve created over the last 10 years to feature other writers who have something to share. I am where I am today because others featured my writing.

All ages are welcome to submit but please note our readers are typically in their 20s and 30s. We recommend you spend some time getting familiar with the content we publish. We like to read pieces that have heart, vulnerability, and/or a genuine desire to make others feel seen and known through your words.

I, personally, believe words can change lives and want to equip our readers to be better, stronger, and braver versions of themselves. Thank you for helping in this mission.

Pieces should be previously unpublished and between 600-1,200 words in length. 

Please only submit one piece at a time. If you do not hear from us about publishing it within 4 weeks, you are free to submit the piece elsewhere.

Pieces should be proofread extensively before submitting.

Please submit your work as a Word document with a bio included at the bottom of the piece.

The Process

Due to the large volume of submissions, we can only accept a small percentage of pieces per season. If you do not hear from someone on our team about publishing your piece after 4 weeks, please feel free to submit to another avenue or try submitting a new piece. Please do not email to inquire about the status of your work.

We encourage you to be unique and original. No plagiarism and please submit work that you feel like captures your true voice. We are not limited to one type of voice– we love all-the-feels, humor, interesting commentary about the Bible, life hacks, and real, vulnerable stories that will make our readers feel seen and heard. 

If we do choose your piece, we will be in touch with you via email to discuss the publishing date.
