Faithfully Magazine is a fresh, bold, and exciting news and culture publication centering on Christian communities of color. Their mission is to amplify conversations, issues, and events affecting diverse communities via faithfullymagazine.com and a weekly newsletter.
The readership is at least 60% women and predominantly White, Black, Hispanic, and Asian Christians. Most readers have attended grad school, are in their mid-20s to mid-40s, are politically active, and regularly attend church.
Sacred Writes is now accepting applications from scholars for three funded partnerships with Faithfully Magazine. Applicants must have training in religious studies, theology, biblical studies, or a related field. This partnership is open to faculty, independent scholars, and graduate students. Priority deadline is 23 April 2019.
Faithfully Magazine will host up to three partnerships to write articles on different topics for their online platform. Each of the three scholars selected will write one article. Topics might include:
This article would focus on a topic for which white Christians/churches have received mainstream media coverage but Christians/churches of color have not. Subject is open to any topic in the scholar’s area expertise. One possibility would be to write about sexual abuse in Black churches.
This article would discuss figures and events centered on Christians of color usually relegated to the background or margins in history and storytelling. Faithfully Magazine currently publishes pieces like this in a section they call “Remember,” but hopes that a scholar could go deeper.
“White Supremacy as Normative”
This article would focus on how and why certain racist practices and preferences are seen as normative in Christians institutions.
The scholars selected for these partnerships will work closely with Faithfully Magazine’s staff on the framing and editing of the article. Final articles should range between 2000-2500 words. Articles should be submitted to Faithfully Magazine no later than 15 June 2019.
Sacred Writes will compensate each scholar with a $1500 stipend for their time, expertise, and labor.
Please submit the following materials through the online form.
A 1-2 page cover letter explaining:
which topic you would like to write about
how your scholarly expertise can help frame and inform a piece
