Blog and SojoMail

We also publish a weekly e-mail newsletter, SojoMail, which draws most of its material from our God's Politics Blog. Submissions for online publication should be 400-600 words in length, and should directly address the intersection of faith and current events. Before submitting, please acquaint yourself with the blog and back issues of SojoMail. We reserve the right to edit for length and clarity.

Please email finished submissions for online publication to our Web team with the words "blog submission" in the subject line. Include a one- or two-sentence biography and a thumbnail photo if possible.

Because of the large volume of submissions, we are unable to respond to article proposals, or to authors whose pieces we are unable to use. If you have not heard back from us in three weeks, please assume that we were unable to use your piece. We are unable to pay honoraria for our online publications.
