Guidelines for submitting an opinion article for consideration. (link coming soon)

Please keep in mind the following guidelines:

  • We receive more submissions than we can often acknowledge and many more than we can publish. Please understand that with a team of three full-time journalists we may not be able to respond to your submission request.
  • We suggest you browse our site for examples of commentaries and other opinion articles we have published. Also it might be a good idea to search key words related to your article to determine if we have previously published articles on the topic you have in mind.
  • We are a news site. We favor commentary articles that address current topics and timely issues for Baptist Christians.
  • Please limit your submission to 700 words.
  • We do not have the financial resources to pay an honorarium for most opinion articles we publish. What we can offer is a lively, engaging news platform with a national and international audience of loyal readers.
  • All submissions will be edited to meet ABPnews/Herald standards for style and substance.
  • ABPnews/Herald retains all rights to published material. If your article is published on our website you are welcome to share it with others via social media as long as you credit ABPnews/Herald and include a direct link to the article on our site.
  • E-mail your submission with the article as a Word document attachment to Robert Dilday, Editor in Chief at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
