New Identity Magazine welcomes freelance submissions relating the Christian faith to growing, connecting and living in an ever-changing world. We’re looking for diverse men and women to share their lives, experiences and viewpoints on relevant topics. Articles are written with new believers in mind and should be written in an informative, applicable and encouraging way. We also welcome articles from those who are not followers of Christ which feature reactions to Christianity and how faith is perceived through the eyes of non-believers.
New Identity Magazine covers a wide range of topics, cultural traditions, applying scripture, navigating relationships, sharing stories and media–all with a Christ-centered mind-set. Articles need creative, well thought-out ideas that offer new insight. We value well researched, factually and biblically supported content. This style helps the reader dig deeper into each topic and build a good foundation. While we support and enjoy opinion pieces, they must be backed up with biblical support and not just hearsay. Avoid aggressive or opinionated tones, and please refrain from using Christian jargon. Unfortunately we do not accept Bible study curriculum, sermons, or fiction. For more on our audience, editorial sections please see our Editorial Calendar.
