Generally, we look for essays that are concrete and experiential—grounding ideas in people’s lives—and that make a fresh connection between the world of faith and the world of daily life, spanning the gap between theology and experience and giving language a human shape.

Length is 800 to 1,000 words.

We don’t publish literary criticism, sermons, or scholarly essays. 

Please note that the poems used in the Poetry Friday series are drawn from work already published in Image. That is, we don't accept submissions for Poetry Fridays.
