Everything we publish is designed to help youth workers be more effective in fulfilling this important calling.

depression. This should be a come-alongside tone, not teaching or preaching. Submit 750 to 800

Death Where the Nights are Long is an anthology of writing about the idea and experience of death.

If your piece is accepted, you will be paid $250 on completed delivery and acceptance.  You will receive another $250 on publication. If the book does very well – as we hope it will – we will also consider a success fee to each contributor in an amount to be determined. Deadline November 1, 2014.


Pays $200 for 1,200 words. Deadline September 30, 2014. Stories can deal with the pains and highlights of motherhood, the wonders of parenting grandchildren, special moments of raising a newborn, being a role model to a teenager, or anything that touches the heart of a mom.
