Want to Be A Writer?

Connect Journal Spring 2012 CoverThe Connect Journal is the publication of the ELCA Youth Ministry Network.  Published 3 (or sometimes 4 if the budget is in an especially good mood) times a year, the journal attempts to put fresh thinking about children, youth and family ministry into people’s hands.  ely 

While there folks who we ask to write articles for each issue, we do solicit articles to be submitted from the Network membership.  We recognize that there is a ton of expertise out there of which we are completely unaware.

So please consider this your invitation to submit an article.  More information can be found on the journal’s writer’s guidelines.

The Connect Journal is a theme driven publication.  Our upcoming themes (and their deadlines) are:

Issue: Theme: Deadline:
Fall, 2013 “Science” September 1, 2013
Winter, 2014 “The Church in the Public Sphere” January 1, 2014
Spring, 2014 “How Do We Teach Stewardship?” April 1, 2014
Fall, 2014 “The Link: Youth Ministry and College” September 1, 2014
Winter, 2015 “The Funny Issue” January 1, 2015
Spring, 2015 “Human Sexuality” April 1, 2014

If you’re interested in writing, you can take a look at our writer’s guidelines.

We know that you’ve got wisdom to share.  We’d love to hear from you, and we’d love to see what you’ve got.  We may use it in the journal…or we may put it in an online edition…who knows!

Thanks for considering this!
