The Lutheran Witness accepts unsolicited manuscripts based on upcoming themes. We are always looking out for compelling, readable, theologically rich writing. These formats include feature stories, teaching essays, narratives, personal stories, interviews, opinion pieces hot topics, listicles, humorous essays, unpublished hymns, Bible studies and more.
You may send a complete manuscript if you have one available, but an email query first is generally preferable and may save you time and trouble if the idea isn’t a good fit for us.
The upcoming themes for 2023 include:
- Life after Roe (January)
- Mental Health (February)
- The Nones (March)
- Death and Resurrection (April)
- Church Planting (June/July)
- Heresies, Ancient and Modern (August)
- Apologetics and Archeology (September)
