WRITE FOR US

WEBSITE ARTICLES

inScribe seeks to share thought-provoking commentary on the writing life and related topics of interest via our website. Commentary arising from a Christian theological perspective is particularly welcome but is not a strict requirement. Published articles might deal with such topics as:

 

  • issues of style and craft

  • discussion of forms and genres

  • the achievement of writers past and present

  • philosophical and theological ideas relevant to writers

  • writing and spirituality

  • the nature of creativity

  • social and cultural commentary

  • insights into publishing and contemporary media

  • book/film/theatre and TV reviews

  • interviews

We are especially interested in intelligent and creative explorations of our scheduled bi-annual themes – articles that encourage thoughtful engagement with the theme, shedding light on its potential relevance to the life and work of creative writers.

 

Articles should range from 1000 - 3000 words in length.

Please email submissions to: inscribe@tabor.edu.au

You’ll know your article is on the right track if it aims to achieve any of the following:

  • To invite people to think

  • To encourage wider reading

  • To inspire people to write

  • To help people write better

  • To deepen writers’ faith perspective

  • To nourish the imagination

  • To learn by shared experience
