Submission Guidelines

Thank you for your interest in writing for us.

Before submitting, please spend a few minutes familiarizing yourself with the style and voice of the Women Leading Women blog and community. You’ll find us conversational in tone as we often share personal stories of various encounters we’ve had with Jesus while serving and leading others.

We seek to offer everyday encouragement as well as practical takeaways rooted in Biblical truths for those in the trenches of leading.


We prefer submissions to be 300-500 words and sent in the body of the email. We would also love for a royalty-free photo {including photographer credit} that reflects the tone of your post to be included. {The photo, though super helpful, isn’t a requirement.} In our desire to lead well, we do ask {and thank you in advance} for you to accurately cite your sources, including Scripture references. Lastly, we love to engage with our community, so if you would please close your post with a related coaching question, or simply a leading question around your topic that encourages interaction in the comments section.

Editorial content is written for women typically in some form of leadership or ministry—whether volunteer or professional—in their churches and/or communities. We are interested in personal stories, profiles, and features or interviews as well as practical how-tos that are well crafted and provide a fresh perspective. Some topics to consider {but feel free to be think beyond these!}:

  • Sustainable Leadership
  • Relationships
  • Mentoring
  • Growth and Development
  • Resources
  • Retreats
  • Inspiring Women
  • Social Media
  • Leadership and Learning

Email queries or submissions to Editor at The subject line of your email should be a one sentence statement that describes your submission. Please include a two to three sentence bio with one live link to your website, along with a photo of yourself. You may also include two social media links.
