Woman Alive is taglined 'The Magazine for Today's Christian Woman' and that's an accurate description. It's a really interesting magazine, with articles about ordinary women from different Christian denominations, sometimes doing extraordinary things with their lives. They don't shy away from controversial subjects and modern dilemmas and I defy anyone not to be moved by some of the stories, no matter your own beliefs.
The magazine is open to freelance writers and the editor, Jackie Stead, is very approachable. As always, it's best to read a couple of issues before submitting; they cover all sorts of subjects of interest to women, and many freelancers provide profiles and articles about some of the things Christian women are doing around the country (and world). There has been a short story in a couple of recent issues, but this is an experiment at the moment and I'm not sure if it will become a regular feature.
You can find submission guidelines on the Contact page of the Woman Alive website.
Worth checking it out, not least for a good read!
