Vintage Voice is seeking authors.

Tell Us Your Story

Vintage Voice is seeking authors.

The Church Pension Group (CPG) invites retired clergy and lay employees, their spouses and surviving spouses, to submit their stories for possible publication in a future Vintage Voice.

Submission Guidelines:

  • Keep it short (under 1,000 words).
  • Focus on a story from your experience that will inspire, challenge, or just make readers laugh.
  • Don't tell your whole life story; there isn't room. Provide a brief sketch of your life and career for the biographical section at the end of the story.
  • Retirement doesn't have to be your focus, but it's a natural topic for the beneficiaries who are primary readers of Vintage Voice.
  • Don't limit yourself to religious and spiritual topics. Secular experiences can also offer opportunities for spiritual insight and reflection.
  • Don't submit sermons. Stick to stories.
  • Reading past Vintage Voice issues at Vintage Voice Archive can be helpful in shaping your own submission.
  • All submissions are subject to editing, and only selected submissions will be published.
