Workshop: Using Negative Experiences for Positive Impact
Sherri Langton, associate editor of Bible Advocate magazine and of Now What? e-zine, has worked in Christian publishing for more than 20 years. She is also an award-winning freelance writer whose work has appeared in various Focus on the Family magazines, In Touch, Upper Room, Marriage Partnership, Today’s Christian Woman, Decision, and other publications. Sherri has contributed poetry and articles to the collections My Turn to Care, Teatime Stories for Women, Becoming a Godly Man, Faces of Faith, and Chicken Soup for the Soul in Menopause. In addition, she teaches workshops at several Christian writers’ conferences. Sherri lives in Denver, Colorado, where she enjoys playing drums and percussion at her church and playing with her two great-nieces, Tori and Teresa.
Now What? is looking for:
Articles that address the “felt needs” of the unchurched (grief, depression, sickness, etc.). Each issue is built around a personal experience, with articles related to the topic. Personal experiences show a person’s struggle that either led to faith in Christ or deepened faith in God. No opinion pieces or poetry.
Bible Advocate is looking for:
Anything in the Bible, of the Bible, and for the Bible is welcomed, but we also want writers to share what God is doing in their lives that may not fit exactly with our themes. Bible Advocate exists to advocate the Bible and correct our illiteracy concerning it. We use a teaching article format, but also accept personal experience stories and poetry. No Christmas or Easter pieces, please.
**November/December 2013 Issue: Thanksgiving, Bible prophecy, and end times. Deadline is August, 31, 2013.
Sherri will review through the manuscript submissions program.
