Would you like to encourage young women with your words?
The Wilting Rose Project reaches out to inspire and bless those who are struggling. If you have a heart to remind girls that they are made worthy in Christ, we would love to receive a submission from you!
New Theme: Hymns (Deadline: May 10)
Would you like to write an article to share with the Roses?
Submissions for our upcoming Hymns theme are now OPEN!
Write a 700-1,200 word article on a hymn and submit it by May 10. (Word count flexible. If you have any questions about your hymn selection, feel free to contact us.)
Submissions should adhere to the core doctrinal beliefs listed in our What We Believe section and be based on Scripture. We encourage writers to overestimate our readers and their ability to meditate on deep topics, while using concise, clear language.
Here are some options to consider as you select a hymn:
- Find a classic hymn that shares the Gospel and meditate on what Jesus did for us
- Look at a hymn about Heaven and tell a story about someone you’re excited to see/see again in Heaven
- Choose a hymn about our walk with God and focus on prayer, resisting temptation, etc.
- Find one that praises an aspect of God and study the Scriptures that inspired a hymn
- Tell the story behind how a hymn was written
We look forward to reading your submissions!
We cannot publish every submission we receive. We reserve the right to reject any submission for any reason.
Every submission must agree with our statement of faith (read here.) While we understand that there is varied Scriptural interpretation among followers of Christ, we do not accept submissions contrary to either Scripture or to our doctrinal statement.
At the Wilting Rose Project, we minister to girls who are hurting deeply. Content that is offensive, obscene, profane, harsh, or insensitive in its articulation of truth will not be considered.
We encourage writers to reflect upon 1 Corinthians 16:14 as they write about difficult topics truthfully: “Let all that you do be done in love.”
Content: We are looking for articles that minister to young women who need to hear who they are in Christ. They may struggle with a low view of how God made them, or perhaps their life is difficult, with a trial such as illness (physical or mental), parental struggles, grief, loneliness, etc. Perhaps you want to talk about your own “wilted journey,” a time in your life when you struggled to see your worth, or when you walked through a difficult trial. Or perhaps you have a message to share with these precious young women. Whatever it is, we would love to see your submission!
How To Submit:
Email submissions to us at thewiltingroseproject at gmail dot com (Characters altered to deter spam; please enter the correct symbols and remove spaces.)
Include “Article” in your subject line.
Articles should be between 700-1200 words. Articles that are broken up in headers or include bullet points are generally easier to read and more likely to be accepted.
Include your submission as a single-spaced, Google document attachment in 11 point Arial. Do not paste your submission into the text of your email.
We will likely do a brief edit for typos or minor grammatical errors. However, if your article requires substantive editing, it is likely to be rejected for that reason. We encourage you to ask a friend who enjoys grammar to look over your draft before submitting it.
Do not include your name or bio anywhere in your submission; we prefer to read submissions blind. In a separate document, please attach a 50 word bio. Paste up to three links to author sites or social media you would like included. Please also add an author photo as a separate attachment.
We accept multiple submissions, up to three articles at a time may be submitted. Please wait for a response before submitting again. We do not accept simultaneous submissions.
We occasionally accept previously published work. Please send a query if you would like to submit a previously published article.
All work must be your own.
Scripture should be referenced and from a literal translation of the Bible, such as the KJV, ESV, NIV, or NASB.
If you are comfortable, please include up to three relevant questions at the end of your article to engage readers to interact with your post.
Please allow 3-4 weeks for your submission to be reviewed. If we have not responded in that time, you may send an inquiry to our submissions manager.
Submitting an article gives The Wilting Rose Project the right to edit and publish. All other rights are retained by the author.
