The Unmooring Journal

The Unmooring is an online and print journal that explores critical issues of Christian faith through women’s voices.

If you’re reading magazines and theological commentary, online or in print, or browsing social media, you might have noticed the prolific number of opinions and writing offered by men in the Christian tradition. Whether it stems from complementarian interpretations of scripture or simply the patriarchal legacy of the Christian church, women’s voices are scarce and often overlooked or ignored.

The Unmooring seeks to assist in remedying this. Our hope is to amplify women’s voices on serious issues of faith, grappling with the complexities of the Christian tradition in our present moment, distilling female reflection and contemplation about what our beliefs mean in an increasingly inequitable world and culture.

We accept articles, essays, liturgy, and original art and photography. We also accept pitches and will work with writers to develop a full piece. Writer and artists from underrepresented constituencies are strongly encouraged and welcome, as is international work and pieces in other languages if accompanied by an English translation. For our full submission guidelines, or more information about The Unmooring, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, please go to our website (
