For more on our policies regarding unsolicited submissions for possible publication, please see the guidelines below.
If you would like to participate in our discussion through prose, poetry, fiction, or the visual arts, Pilgrim invites you to submit your work for possible publication.
General guidelines: Humanistic in our approach, we are interested in all subjects that concern the life and destiny of real men and women. We seek work of intellectual, literary, and artistic quality which is also accessible to a general audience. Because our publisher, Pilgrim Publishers, Inc., is a recognized non-profit in the United States, we do not publish content that advances political parties, candidates, or ideologies per se. Contributors are nevertheless welcome to discuss social and economic issues and a wide range of topics relevant to politics, so long as they keep in mind that our mission at Pilgrim is educational, literary, and religious, and not political advocacy.
Prose essays, reviews, and shorter posts: Drafts can range between 500 and 5,000 words. We are flexible as to length depending on the topic and purpose of the piece. Prose pieces should contain no footnotes or endnotes. Block quotations and parenthetical citations are acceptable, and all quotations should be clearly referenced with a source name somewhere nearby in the text of the draft. Reviews of books, movies, TV series, musical performances, etc., are welcome and may treat older works as well as very current works of interest to Pilgrim's readers.
Short stories or chapters of unpublished fiction works: Drafts should range from 1,500 to 5,000 words but this length is negotiable upon consultation with the editors.
Poetry and the visual arts: We are interested in cultivating mature artistry that is rooted in the Catholic sense of life and animated by love of God, neighbor, and Creation. We are therefore open to original submissions that employ traditional as well non-traditional forms, and we wish to learn from the vision of artists whose work may challenge common assumptions about what art made by Christians can look, feel, and sound like. Work that creatively relates to the theme of pilgrimage is particularly welcome.
Format: Please submit written work in .doc, .docx, .rtf, or .txt format, and digital photographs or scans of original visual artwork in .jpg
format, to email@example.com.
If you do not hear back from us: Do not hesitate to double check that your submission has been received and considered. We cannot guarantee a prompt reply to every message, but we give due consideration to everything that is sent to us and will let you know as soon as possible whether it has been accepted for publication, whether we think it needs a little work before we can publish it, or whether it is not deemed suitable for this particular website.
Remuneration: We cannot afford at this time to remunerate writers and artists for their submissions.
