Submissions & Pitches
We are currently accepting art, photography, and written pieces for both our print magazine and online platform!
Our current Print theme is "Created".
Online writes and edits pieces for our website, publishing on a weekly basis. Pieces to be submitted to Online include ones that talk about personal experiences, encouragement, the cares and concerns of most college students and the nation at this time, current events, important Christian topics, poetry, narratives, and testimonies. This Spring, Online would love to hear your stories about faith, Christ, and your walk with Him. For those who would love to write for Cornerstone but are having a hard time finding that initial spark, we’d love to offer a few prompts for you:
• What is a gospel story that especially resonates with you, and how have you felt it intersect with your life?
• Storms & God —during storms in your life, how have you witnessed Christ?
• Easter’s almost upon us, and we’d love to hear your own experiences with transformation. How has God changed you? How do you continue to feel His presence in his life?
Don’t worry about your pieces being perfect—that’s what we’re here for! We hope to provide a supportive environment to talk about your writing, about your faith, and grow in Christ’s community together!
Print writes and edits pieces for the print magazine, published biannually in the fall and spring. Pieces to be submitted to Print include long-form journalism, interviews, scientific-related analyses, important Christian topics, current events, poetry, personal experiences, and any pieces related to the theme “Created”. A brief blurb on our theme for Print: Created. In His image. On purpose. God created mankind in His own image and likeness (Genesis 1:27). Before He formed you in the womb He knew you (Jeremiah 1:5). He filled our nostrils with the breath of life (Genesis 2:7). He is the vine; we, the branches (John 15:5). How have you encountered your Creator? Where has He breathed new life into you? How has He formed you for His glory? What flabbergasts you about Him and His Creation? Cornerstone will be exploring all these questions in our Fall 2022 Issue, Created, and we would love for you to join us. Submit pieces for consideration here, and the Print Editing Team will discuss it the following Sunday, reach out with feedback, and work collaboratively with you to build the piece into the very best it can be. Submissions do not need to be perfectly polished or set in stone— works in progress are welcome!
There are no requirements or prior experience needed to write for Cornerstone or to join Cornerstone staff. If you are interested in getting more involved in the magazine, attend one of our meetings and get to know us! Learn more at the Join Staff page.
