We seek to do all things Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam, for the greater glory of God.
Therefore, the work you submit for publication by Saint Dominic’s Media Inc. should reflect and be in union with our mission and that which we seek. In addition, the particular areas in which we publish content (i.e. books and articles) do have these particular callings listed below:
Theology and other Non-Fiction – We only accept completed manuscripts that are double-spaced, include no special formatting, and have been thoroughly edited. Do not send proposals. We are looking for content that is in union with the traditional and faithful teaching of the Catholic Church. Selected manuscripts will be compelling, persuasive, smart but accessible to a broad audience, and timeless/enduring. Content should be original (at minimum 85% of the submitting author’s own contribution) and thoughtful; meaning, consisting of mature and well thought-out arguments.
- Fiction – We are only accepting completed manuscripts, which have been thoroughly edited. Do not send proposals. We are looking for works of fiction that will inspire our readers to grow deeper in their Catholic faith by the way following fictional characters through their journey in search of the truth. Selected manuscripts will be compelling, fresh, and timeless.
- Fictional Short Stories – In addition to the criteria for Fiction Submissions above, we are accepting completed short fictional stories for books that will include several short stories.
- Poetry – We do not publish books of poetry, but Opus Verum (see below) might be an option for you.
Our published authors receive a royalty of 33% of total NET of the sales of their book for the first eighteen months of publication and 50% of NET thereafter.

Essays for Website:
The selection of essays on the Saint Dominic’s Website are meant to guide our readers into a deeper appreciation and understanding of the traditional teachings of the Catholic Church on faith, morals, and how they might apply what the Church teaches into their lives on a daily basis, so that they might grow deeper and closer to Christ Jesus through His Church. Articles covering news and entertainment (author must provide a link to associated video) will be considered for My Catholic Tube (mCT).
We are not looking for short personal-blog-type posts or empirical-based reflections. Essays submitted should reflect the mission of Saint Dominic’s Media, as well as be thoughtful, compelling, fresh, and not previously published anywhere else on the internet. Essays should be at least 800 to 5,500 words in length.
For essays that reach a combination of 300 total shares and 1,000 total views within the first 45 days from date published, we do compensate our authors with an honorarium. We ask for authors to provide and keep updated an appropriate picture and professional bio to go with your article(s), as well as links to where readers can learn more about you (e.g. Facebook, Google +, Linkedin, personal website).
