There’s nothing like the thrill of seeing your writing published! Devotion writing is a great way to dip your toe in the publishing world.
Last year we held our first Next Step Coaching Services Devotion Writing Contest, and we’ll hold our second one this August – we’ll give you more details in the upcoming months. In the meantime, you can start preparing. We’ll be accepting devotions between 400-500 words at most, and you’ll be able to submit two entries. We’ll be using the structure explained in my devotion writing book, How to Write a Devotion: Workbook with Steps to Create a Devotion or Devotional Blog Post, for just $11.99.
Secondly, every writer needs this resource, Christian Writers Market Guide – 2021 Edition, currently free for Kindle Unlimited. You’ll find information about publishers, literary agents, periodicals, and devotionals.

There’s a secret sauce to writing a devotion. After writing 100s of published devotions in my time with Proverbs 31 Ministries, I created the workbook, How to Write a Devotion: Workbook with Steps to Create a Devotion or Devotional Blog Post for just $11.99. Let this book serve as your guide as you write and submit devotions to a variety of places.
If you know of other places accepting devotion submissions, let us know!
