Write-to-Publish Faculty Interview: Chris Tiegreen, Editor of Indeed

Briefly describe the publications you represent.

Indeed is a devotional magazine for a general adult audience, though targeted mainly at Christians who already have a good knowledge of the Bible.

Tapestry is a devotional magazine for women.

Pathways is the magazine we send to donors and other friends of Walk Thru the Bible that includes feature articles on international ministry, news updates, and brief personality profiles.

How can a writer break into your magazine?

The best way to be considered for our magazines is to send a sample of your writing to me at We have an occasional need for new writers and keep the best writing samples on file for when those needs arise, at which time we contact the writer with details. For Indeed and Tapestry, we look for samples of devotional articles around 600-650 words. For Pathways, previously published samples of any news or feature articles would be appropriate.

How can a writer best prepare for an appointment with you?

Have some samples prepared — devotional or news-oriented. They don't need to fit the magazine exactly. I'm looking for engaging, insightful writers, not a specific piece of writing. If I can see some samples of your best work and hear you describe the kind of writing you love to do, it will help me determine whether your work and our magazines might be a good fit for each other.

Write-to-Publish will be held June 3 – 6

in the Chicago area.
