The Eclectic Homeschool promotes creative homeschooling through unique resources, teaching methods, and online helps. We are a Christian publication, and although we do not limit ourselves to Christian material, we will not accept articles which include proselytizing for other religions or worldviews.
We are currently soliciting articles for publication covering any topic that deals with or touches on homeschooling or Christian living. Feature articles should reflect a creative and individual approach to homeschooling. We are looking for articles that are encouraging, practical, and insightful. We typically publish articles that deal with real life responses to homeschooling issues, assistance in choosing and using curriculum or resources, homeschooling as a life style, Christian faith and how it relates to raising our children, and ideas in education.
We are also looking for shorter departmental pieces that deal with methods or topics within a particular academic area. Our departments include: Math, Critical Thinking, Science, Social Studies, Language Arts, The Arts, Crafts, Home & Family, College & Career, Bible, and Computer. Articles may include real life experiences in homeschooling a particular subject, hands-on activities, practical suggestions or tips, or how-to's for specific topics (how to teach addition and subtraction of fractions or how to make a solution for chemistry).
We are unable to pay for articles at this time. We do make occassional exceptions. Query the acquisitions editor.
Please include a 20-30 word credit with your submission. You may include a link to your website or email address.
