Guidelines For Writers

The purpose of The Internet Café is to unite women of faith, regardless of our stage in life, our roles as women, our hair color, our political party, or the church we attend. We believe that one of the best ways to do this is to encourage each other in faith, by our spoken and written words accompanied by a short study each day to challenge and motivate you.

Most of our devotions are written by regular monthly contributors but we do accept submissions for use in guest spots. Also, from time to time a writer will step down to pursue other interests that God has placed on her heart and will need to be replaced. That is why submissions are important.

We are seeking devotions that will capture the interest of Christian women and inspire them to pursue the heart of our Father. Devotions should:
  • be uplifting and void of condemnation.
  • reflect a Biblical perspective.
  • contain Bible verses (along with its reference and the translation it was taken from.)
  • contain a short prayer.
  • have questions to ponder at the end of the post that would welcome dialogue with our readers.

We are interested in inspiring devotions that share the God moments in day-to-day life; the honest transparency that brings you closer to the heart of Jesus; and words that guide readers into Biblical truth. We are not interested in publishing work that is written in an academic tone with the purpose to solely teach as though in a Sunday school setting. We must reach our readers and make the word relevant by using personal stories, experiences, and analogies. We also do not accept poetry. While we enjoy a theological type of writing, this blog is based around devotional material.

Devotions should be approximately 400-700 words in length, and should be well proofed for errors before submission.

Authors must own the rights to any works that are submitted.

Devotions must be submitted in a Google doc, Microsoft Word for Windows format or .pdf files with the author’s name, telephone number, URL, and email address marked at the top. Authors should also include a short bio and photograph.

We will try our best to consider all submissions, but unfortunately, we will not be able to include all devotions that are sent to us.

Please note that all writing is done on a volunteer basis.
