Deeply Rooted Magazine is created by a small team working in collaboration with 60+ volunteers from all over the world. We willingly accept unsolicited submissions based on future issue themes and potential reader interest. Please be sure to read everything carefully before submission.

CURRENT NEEDS
  • We are accepting blog posts for all seasons and Holidays.
  • We are looking for more biographical pieces, interviews, DIYs, and expositional articles based off of Biblical passages for both print and blog.
  • We are accepting submissions for regular, contributing photographers, letterers, and illustrators.
  • Check back for updates on upcoming issues and themes.
GENERAL SUBMISSIONS POLICY
  • Please do not submit college essays or pieces that read like a formal essay. Some examples of what we are looking for can be found here.
  • We cannot guarantee placement based on your abstract, and we approve submissions contingent upon space allowance. We look at all submitted works regularly—and we love involving new contributors.
  • Please keep in mind that content decisions are made roughly 6–9 months ahead of the publication dates, so please time your pitches accordingly, keeping seasons and holidays in mind. We also only include original content that hasn't been published elsewhere, including websites and blogs (with the exception of personal websites and blogs.) 
  • Unfortunately, due to the small size of our editorial team and a number of pitches we receive each week, we can't respond individually to all submissions. We will be in touch within six weeks if yours fits a need.
  • Please keep in mind that all submissions are on a volunteer basis only. We are unable to compensate for any accepted submissions at this time. If you are selected to contribute to our print magazine, we link back to your website in our digital version, and we also provide a complimentary print copy as a thank you for your hard work. If you are selected to contribute to our blog, we link back to your website and include a short, personal bio at the end of the post.
THANK YOU
We are just so grateful for your willingness to use your gifts for the mission of our magazine and the glory of God. We look forward to reviewing your work and thank you for being a reader.

Please note that we ask our writers to support all claims and absolutes with Scripture, and we will be looking for verses and references.

We will be in contact within 6 weeks if your pitch has been successful. We use Submittable as a collation tool, not as an assigning tool, so your submission's status will not change in Submittable regardless of if we move forward with the idea or not.

Thank you! We are so grateful for your willingness to serve alongside us for the glory of God!
