How do I register?

Sign up for an account by clicking on the "LOG IN" button at the top of the screen. By providing some basic information, you can get started posting comments on content throughout Engage.

How do I contribute a story or other content?

If you want to contribute your stories or pictures to Engage after you have registered, send us an e-mail at engagemagazine @ nazarene.org, explaining that you want to write a story or contribute other content. We'll assign you writer status and you can get started writing stories.

What format should my photos be in?

Photos can be submitted as JPEG, TIFF, and BMP. The resolution should be 72 dots per inch (dpi), and the longest side should be no longer than 8 inches, or 20 centimeters. This allows for pictures to load quickly and easily for people who are reading Engage using a slow Internet connection or with dial-up Internet.

Will I get paid if I contribute?

Engage magazine is a gathering place for Nazarenes to tell our global family how God is calling and involving each of us in His mission for the world. As such, we do not pay for stories, photos, essays, or any other content that is voluntarily submitted. We look forward to reading your stories and seeing your photos, and we know others in our global family do, too!

What should I write about?

Anything, as long as it relates to mission. Personal essays, interviews and articles are always welcome.

Photo essays are a great way to tell a story quickly and visually, with the aid of captions. You can e-mail your photos to us, along with detailed information for the captions, and the names of those who took the pictures. We'll create a photo essay under your name.

I'm not a professional writer.

That's OK! We believe your passion comes through best when you tell your story in your own words.

When you submit your story to our editors, we may help out by giving it a few polishing touches, or sending it back to you with a few friendly suggestions that will help you bring clarity to your story. And we're always happy to answer questions on how to tell your story in a clear and compelling way.

Check out our staff blog for writing tips and tricks to boost your writing confidence and hone your skills: http://nazareneblogs.org/nutsandgraphs. We'll also post resources and writing aids periodically in the resource section on this page as we find great worksheets and Web sites that we think could help you.

So, don't hold back.
