WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR

Our goal is to present fresh perspectives and thoughts that provide practical application and well-written insight into our theme. We publish a variety of content types, including Bible-based teaching, research, interviews, practical tips, etc. The theme for the fall 2021 issue is pursuit.

WHO WE ARE

The Truly Co exists to share faith-filled content complemented by beautiful design to the world around us. We serve our readers by promoting peace and encouragement and exploring what Biblical truth looks like lived out. We believe the Holy Spirit uses creativity and imagery to speak and connect to hearts in powerful ways that will ultimately point them back to Jesus.

 

OUR AUDIENCE

Truly’s target audience is women ages 20–40 in various stages of life and profession. Truly is “life stage neutral,” meaning we focus less on topics like motherhood and marriage, and instead explore cultural topics and challenges. Our readers care about active faith, understanding Biblical truth, and what these principles look like on a practical level. Our audience is familiar with Christianity, but tired of “Christianese” speak. Real, authentic, deep, and raw conversations resonate more so than a list of “you shoulds.”

GET TO KNOW US

We highly recommend reviewing past magazine issues and blog posts to see exactly what we’re looking for and the quality of the work we publish. This includes both written work and artistic elements such as photography, artwork and illustrations. For more details about our publication, visit our store.
