The War Cry: Christmas

September 8, 2018
The War Cry: Christmas 
 
The War Cry, now in its 137th year, represents the Salvation Army’s mission through news, profiles, commentaries and stories. It looks to bring people to Christ, help believers grow in faith and character, and promotes redemptive cultural practices from the perspective of Salvation Army programs, ministries and doctrines. Readership consists of those in and involved with The Salvation Army as well as the general public. It is distributed in bulk to Salvation Army locations for use in ministry, and to individual subscribers. Over the last two years the magazine’s design and content have been upgraded, its circulation moved from biweekly to monthly, and a new insert called “Intersection” added for use as a separate hand out to reach those unfamiliar with the meaning and vernacular of the Christian faith.
 
Published 12 times per year, with special issues at Christmas and Easter. The average circulation is 185,000 copies monthly, 1.7 million at Christmas and 1 million at Easter. Articles, Reprints, Photographs (600 dpi) News, Non-Fiction, Fiction (Limited), Use New Living Translation. Payment made at time of acceptance is $0.35 per word for first rights, one-time use articles, $0.15 per word for reprints. Submit articles for a particular theme 60 days prior to the issue date. Please limit these submissions to 800 – 1250 words.
 
Deadline: October 1 – publication: December 2018
