The Flood invites writers of all backgrounds to explore the religious implications of political realities and vice versa.

We are currently accepting submissions – essays, analysis, event coverage, memoir, reviews, criticism, interviews, photo essays, and other relevant material. We are open to creative or even cathartic writing but are not currently seeking to publish poetry or previously published material.

We value writing informed by personal experiences, spiritual, political, or otherwise, and we give priority to pieces from people of color, women, trans and queer people, and people from non-Christian faith traditions and backgrounds including atheists and agnostics.

We compensate writers for articles that we publish.
