Resolute Magazine aims to create an environment where multi-ethnic media is normal in the Christian world. With that, we focus on four major industries: Fashion, Art, Music, and Film, in order to share the stories of the many people within those industries. We also cover Culture, which is where we include poetry, short stories, personal essays, and opinion pieces. Lastly, we cover social justice issues within the categories listed in our menu bar above.
You don't have to be a published writer to be considered, but we do ask that you browse the site for what we’re looking for and consider what you can add to that. You can submit a pitch or a completed work. We DO NOT accept previously published work. If your work is being looked at by another publication, we do ask that you let us know if it will for certain be published by them. We want to respect other publications right to the original work you’ve trusted them with.
So, would you like to write for us? Check out our submissions form below.
Resolute Magazine operates under two forms of submissions: pitches and completed pieces. We DO NOT accept previously published stories. Posts written for Resolute Magazine CANNOT be submitted and published elsewhere.
1. What do you look for in a pitch?
Our goal is to publish overlooked stories. Resolute Magazine is not a fast-paced media site, therefore, we do not publish articles that can be considered “old news.” All pitches MUST be one paragraph stating the story's angle, the projected word count, and why it is relevant to Resolute Magazine.
PLEASE stick to two paragraphs when pitching. Send your second draft, not your first.
2. How do I submit?
Fill out our submissions form below.
3. How long should articles be?
For personal essays, profile pieces, and poetry 800-1,000 words. For short stories, do not exceed 2,000 words. Q and A's can be between 1,000 - 2,000 words.
Keep in mind that if your poem is less than 800 words, that is perfectly fine (we look for a minimum of 50 words for poetry submissions). We aim to reach the 300-word count at minimum and the 2,000-word count at max for work published on our website.
4. Can I submit photos/illustrations?
Yes! Most of our photos are submitted by the people we interview and are properly credited from online, but we definitely are always open to original photos. For photography and illustration, you will have to go through the submissions form letting us know what it is for and we will get back to you on whether or not it is accepted.
5. Do you have themes that we can follow as writers?
As a publication, we are working to think through monthly themes to publicize as we go further. Pitches and submissions do not always have to follow the monthly theme.
Any other questions? Contact us and let us know!
