Where do I submit my letter?

Scroll to the bottom of this page to submit your letter!

Do you accept every letter you receive?

Unfortunately, due to limited letter slots, we cannot accept every letter we receive! We will let you know if your letter is accepted within five weeks of your submission.

When will I hear back from you?

You will hear back from us on whether or not your letter is accepted, and if it has revisions or edits to be made, within five weeks of your submission.

What are common reasons why we turn letters down?

Doesn’t tell a story

The most common reason we turn down letters is because they are not written in narrative form. We are not looking for a spiritual reflection, but a personal story of your own that gives us a glimpse of who you are as a Catholic woman. A letter that only shares an anecdote or a reflection and fails to tell a story will be rejected. 

Tip: What’s the difference between a story and an anecdote?

Too Much Information

Given the 1500 word-count limit, there isn’t enough space for the writer to share their life story. Instead, focus your story on one moment, event or season in your life, providing more context when necessary.

The Story Isn’t Clear

We look for letters that paint a clear, and detailed picture of a personal experience. In other words: show, don’t tell. Good storytelling allows the reader to learn from and empathize with the writer, and, ultimately, grow in charity.

If I’ve submitted a letter in the past, can I submit a new letter?

Yes, please do! We are happy to hear from you again.

If you have had a letter featured on our platform before in the past, we will not accept a second letter. In the spirit our mission to illustrate the many faces and vocations of women in the Church, we feature a letter from a new Catholic woman every week.
