Submission Guidelines

Join Our Online Outreach Team

Do you have a message for single moms -- a word of encouragement,  a practical tip or parenting idea?  Arise Ministries is looking for fresh voices with interesting angles to write for our single mother audience.  Our website provides valuable resources for parenting, relationships, spiritual growth and more. We are currently accepting submissions for articles. 

Please review these Contributing Writer Guidelines before submitting your work. We are excited about the possibility of partnering with you to help single mothers create healthy homes. An honorarium will be paid for each published submission.

Consider the audience.

Arise Ministries is a single mother ministry.  While your submission does not have to reference single mothers specifically, it should feature a relevant topic applicable for women raising children alone. The best way to understand our audience is to read current blog posts and explore the Education Center to get a feel for the kind of work we publish. 

Follow the submission guidelines.

  • Articles for Equip should be between 600-750 words.
  • If you quote scripture in your work, please cite the scripture reference.
  • Please use titles that make it easy for the reader to understand the theme of the article. 
  • Your submission must be an original work.
  • Time-sensitive submissions (seasonal, holiday, etc.) must be submitted at least 2 months in advance.
  • You may also include one link to your website, book or blog.
  • Submit your work in a Word document with no special formatting.

Your work will be reviewed by our editorial staff. We reserve the right to make edits to your submission for the purpose of clarity, formatting, or correcting typographical and grammatical errors. Please allow 3 weeks for a response.  If we use your submission, you will be notified of the publish date and we will send you a link so you can also promote it on your social media channels. Upon acceptance, you will be compensated for your work according to how it is featured on our website.
