Queries and proposals have changed as technology has advanced. We think that's a good thing because the process is more efficient.
To get started, if you're interested in writing for YWJ
print, the first thing you'll want to do is check out the Guides
If a particular theme stirs your passion, then we want to hear from you! To submit a proposal, begin by thinking about the theme regarding how it relates to youth ministry. Narrow your subject to hone in on a specific issue you think youth workers should know about, how particular knowledge could help their ministries and anything else regarding why what you have to say is important in reaching youth.
Then, create your outline. Once you do that, you can submit it along with a introductory paragraph summarizing the article you are proposing. Email proposals to ALee@SalemPublishing.com
