Every Living Real story must help the reader answer the question, “What does faith look like with skin on it?”

Article submissions must remain true to the theme of the magazine—real life, real faith, real people. Articles must tell a story of how real life circumstances have challenged and strengthened the writer’s faith by living out God’s Biblical principles. Inserting verses or passages to support the story’s message is highly recommended.

Contributors are not paid, but do retain the rights to their work. Contributors may also list Living Real Magazine on their resume as a place their work has been published.

Each contributor receives 10 copies of the issue in which their work is published (more potentially available upon request).
