Quick Start Guide - Submitting an Article
Have you got some exciting news to share with the rest of Mind and Soul? Has God been speaking to you on a particular topic that other people may find useful? Have you been studying something new with your small group and you’d like to tell other people about it? The document editor is the place where you can contribute to our web site and see your work online! See our guidelines on how to write for us.
Use this method to submit Articles, Testimonies and Book Reviews. If you get really stuck you can email us with the article, but it is much easier for us if you use the 'submit' function which works just like Microsoft Word or similar, and you can 'copy&paste' from articles you have already written.

The text editor works very much like a word-processor; enter text as normal and use the toolbar at the top of the screen to change the appearance of the text. To insert a table use the insert table button and select the number of rows and columns you require. Use the buttons in the tab section of the toolbar to change the appearance of the table you have create. To insert an image use the "insert image" button; a new window will open allowing you to choose an image from your computer. Select the 'Browse' option and select the image you wish to upload to the site. N.B.you should never use copyrighted images from the internet. For some examples of free or cheap stock imagery visit our support site for some recommendations. The image will be displayed in your article shortly afterwards.
Submitting the article
Once the document is complete press the Next
button to continue. Select which group you feel is the most appropriate location for your article and press the Submit
button to complete the process. An administrator will review and then publish the document in due course.
