Submission Guidelines


  • Submissions are received on speculation. Queries do not guarantee acceptance. Inkspirations Online reserves the right to reject a submission at any stage if it does not meet our editorial needs.
  • We accept original pieces or reprints. If you submit content which has appeared anywhere else (including your personal blog), please cite the original publication. Authors assume responsibility for ensuring reprint rights.
  • As a free online devotional, Inkspirations is unable to pay authors for accepted manuscripts. We attempt to compensate authors by increasing their exposure and credibility through publication in our online devotional. Authors acknowledge there will be no remuneration, and thereby relinquish their work for publication without payment.
  • Please submit one devotional piece per email.
  • Attach your devotional as a Word document.
  • In addition to your devotional file, attach a headshot (jpeg file) and a 60 word bio with no more than 2 links.
  • Documents must be double spaced with one inch margins. Use only Times New Roman, 12pt font.
  • Devotions must be between 300 and 400 words in length. The word count includes the concluding prayer, but not the title or scripture.
  • If quoting a verse from the Bible, please include the translation from which you are quoting.
  • Inkspirations Online exists to encourage writers. Please ensure your devotion relates to writers and conveys inspiration. Avoid preachy language or self-promoting content. Provide messages of “me too” rather than “how to.”
  • Please follow the format used on our site. Begin with a single scripture passage. Open the devotion with an illustration or personal experience. Lead into the message. Close with a prayer.
  • In order to align with the Chicago Manual of Style, followed by many CBA publishers, we do not capitalize divine pronouns.
  • In the top left corner of the document, include your name, email address, phone number, title of the devotion, and word count.
  • Title your word doc as follows: Your Name – Devotion Title.doc
  • Email submissions to, with Inkspirations Submission – Your Name – Devotion Title in the subject line.
  • Take the time to have someone else read your post for clarity, grammar, spelling, and punctuation before submitting.
  • By submission, authors thereby agree to all edits and changes deemed necessary by the Inkspirations Online Team without further review by the author.
  • You are not required to include images with your post submission. The author must own all rights to any images submitted.
  • Inkspirations Online will close acquisitions when content needs have been met. Manuscripts will not be accepted after acquisitions have been suspended. Authors may resubmit when acquisitions re-open.
