Calling All Writers and Wannabe Writers!

ProjectYM is looking for some youth ministers and core team members to write for our blog!

The ProjectYM blog is a place where readers all over the world come to find useful information to help them thrive in their ministry. We publish articles that touch the heart, give witness to the glory of God, offer “How-to’s” and action items for youth ministers to try out with their teens,
what we lovingly call “Listicles”

What is a listicle?

A “listicle” is an article that is what it sounds like. It is a list of things that a youth minister or core team member would be interested in. It could be anything like “10 best gifts to give your core team”, or “5 Ways to Manage a Room Full of 100+ teens” or “7 Awesome Lock-In Activities”.

So, you need to ask yourself three things:

Are you passionate about youth ministry?
Do you have a brain full of tips that the ministry world would love and could benefit from?
Do you like to share your perspective and opinions with everyone you meet?

If you said “yes” to these questions, then JOIN US! If you are part of the PYM blog team, you will get these awesome perks.

A few tips for you

  • Blog articles should be between 400-600 words.
  • Shorter sentences are best since we all know no one has time to read long run on sentences because they just get confused and forget about what it was that you were talking about in the first place and will have to go all the way back to the beginning of the sentence and reread it several times. See what I did there?
  • Don’t use the passive voice if possible.
  • Try to vary the words you start sentences with. Try not to use the same word over and over. Try to use a thesaurus or dictionary if you need to.
  • Most importantly – BE CREATIVE AND HAVE FUN WITH THIS!

We can’t wait to hear from you and see what you’ve got to offer!
