They should be double spaced, with your name and address in the upper left-hand corner of the first page. The approximate number of words should be in the upper right-hand corner. Also, state whether first or second (reprint) rights are offered. Hard copies should be typewritten or printed on a letter-quality or near-letter quality printer (preferably not dot matrix). Be sure to keep a copy; we cannot be responsible for safekeeping of manuscripts.

  1. Snail mail. If you don't have access to a computer, mail to: Pentecostal Evangel, 1445 N. Boonville Avenue, Springfield, MO, 65802. If you wish your manuscript to be returned it must be accompanied by a self-addressed envelope and sufficient postage. Otherwise it will be discarded if rejected.

  2. Article length. From 500 to 1,200 words.

We reserve the right to publish inspiring excerpts from testimonies. Please inform if you are offering first rights or second rights. First rights: The article has never been published before in print or on the Internet. Second rights: The article has previously been published, in print or on the Internet. A blog or similar piece that has been posted on the Internet is considered second rights.

  8. No handwritten manuscripts accepted.
