A Call for Staff Writers

Want to write for Christ and Pop Culture?

We’re looking for new staff writers who feel confident and excited about writing about the intersection of the Christian faith and popular culture. Here are some of the things we’re looking for in prospective writers:

  • A commitment to what is commonly referred to as “conservative evangelical theology.” That includes, but is not limited to, the infallibility of scripture, justification by faith alone, original sin, the historicity of the crucifixion and resurrection, and a  commitment to the local church.
  • A love for nuanced, reasoned, and impassioned prose.
  • A reason to take you seriously. We would like those writing to have some experience that contributes to our site. We are excited about taking on new writers but you’ll need to make a case for yourself.
  • Perspectives or interests that are currently underrepresented at CaPC.

Each staff writer commits to write between 600-1000 words every week through a combination of larger and smaller pieces, though we are understanding when life happens. Staff writers have priority when it comes to pitching features for our tablet magazine. You’ll also be a part of an active and dynamic community of writers and a diverse and growing publication with plans for even more growth in the future.

If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, just email us at christandpopculture@gmail.com with the subject line “Writing App”. Include some information about yourself, three examples of your work (via URL or copy/pasted into the email), and a brief description of your most valued theological beliefs.

As of right now, we only provide monetary compensation for magazine features, so staff writers will be writing for free.

Still, we work hard to make the experience valuable for those who write for us. You’ll be a part of an active and vibrant community who sharpen and encourage one another in their work. Many of our writers have gone on to write for Christianity TodayPaste, The Gospel CoalitionRelevantKill ScreenFilmwell, and Think Christian (to name a few). We take our responsibility to our writers seriously, and we consider growing and helping our writers to improve to be one of our primary goals.

*We appreciate each and every inquiry but cannot guarantee a response to every one. We apologize in advance.

    Luke 10:7: “the worker deserves his wages.” Is it just me, or is calling an unpaid position “staff writer” a bit off? It’s a volunteer position, isn’t it? Why not call it that?

  • Alan Noble

    The worker does deserve his wages. Are you interested in helping to support CaPC? Several of us have worked on this site for years receiving between nothing (me) and coffee money. So, we’d be grateful if our readers felt that our work deserved wages. Please email me if you are interested in supporting our work.

    As for the term “staff writer,” we are using it to differentiate contributors who occasionally write for us and guest writers. Staff writers are a part of the CaPC group.
