How to Find a Market for Written Devotions
There are many markets for devotional writing – some paying and others not. There is no harm in starting out with non-paying markets as it gives experience and published clips to show to future editors. Apart from that, devotionals reach people’s hearts and have the potential to draw them closer to God.
Where are Devotionals Published
Daily devotions come in several forms including hard or soft cover books that span a year, monthly or quarterly booklets, and devotions that are delivered daily by email. There is sometimes a fair delay between submission and publication. In August 2008 I wrote some devotionals for a publisher that puts out yearly books. I received payment after submission and thirty books in January 2010. Each publisher will have their own timelines and methods.
Links to Sites that Accept Devotional Submissions
Here are a few sites to check out – I haven’t submitted anything to these myself but they are worth having a look at.
