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!
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 email@example.com
Include “Article” in your subject line.
Articles should be between 700-1000 words. Articles that are broken up in headers or include bullet points are generally easier to read and more likely to be accepted.
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.
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.
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 attach an author photo.
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 typically do not accept previously published work. However, if you believe your piece, published on a small personal blog, would greatly benefit our audience, please send a query to firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
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.
