Calls for Submissions!

• Writers needed for New Catholic Evangelization Ministry “Saint Connection:” If a Catholic saint like St. Francis of Assisi or St .Therese of Lisieux could send text messages to your phone, what would they say?

Saint Connection is a New Evangelization ministry looking for Catholic writers who can enter into the hearts and minds of popular Catholic saints, and create first-person text messages. Each Saint’s story will consist of approximately 20-30 text messages with the standard 160 characters per text. We will pay approximately $200 / saint story and give credit and recognition to each creative writers on each saint’s page on our website Our texting service is already working on a trial basis and will launch publicly at the end of 2012.
