Thank you to everyone who entered Next Step Coaching Services’ Devotion Contest!
We have notified our winner and the winning devotion will be published 11/24.
Our judges said we had many, many excellent entries. We will have another contest next year, so keep writing and honing your craft! We hope you’ll get our resource as your guide to writing, How to Write a Devotion: Workbook with Steps to Create a Devotion or Devotional Blog Post.
One thing Amy Carroll and I know: it takes courage to put yourself out there as a writer. Each time we submit something for possible publication, we still know what it feels like to feel vulnerable and to have doubts about our abilities. The more you write and submit, however, the more likely you are to find God-confidence as a writer.
A great source to find places accepting submissions: The Christian Writers Market Guide. It’s filled with information about publishers, editors, agents, and more!
Let me mention one tip for submitting: Make sure to follow the guidelines.
Each publisher has a specific set of guidelines to follow when you submit. Make sure you follow them. Otherwise, your submission will probably not even be considered. For example, our devotion contest had specific guidelines for length, font type, etc. When you follow the guidelines in your submissions, it communicates several things that you may not even be aware of—attention to detail, willingness to work on your craft to meet the guidelines, and a professional approach to your writing.
Our winning devotion will be announced and published on 11/24.
