April 2022 — Koinonia’s Recommended Stories & Notes for Writers
Happenings — a monthly update for readers and writers of Koinonia Publication
A note from Julie
Here at Koinonia, we want to help you start your day off just right. Please visit our homepage for a quick daily devotional and more fantastic content from our writers.
Our writers cover a variety of topics every month, but… what about rapists, murderers, unexpected companions, coveting, and loose pages? What really killed Jesus? Scroll down and read something provocative. We’ve got all that and more.
This newsletter includes publication statistics for the month of April; recommended reading; tips and content for writers; and concluding remarks.
· As of April 30, 2022, we have 445 writers with our publication!
Our April Scripture Prompt was Galations 2:20
Here’s a glimpse at how this verse spoke to our writers:
Our past newsletters announced the monthly scripture prompt. We’ll no longer announce the next prompt in this newsletter. Writers should visit the Koinonia homepage and the Koinonia Writer’s group on Facebook for monthly prompt updates. Click for the May Prompt verse and our simple style requirements.
In our private Facebook group for Koinonia writers, our writers share their own stories and favorites written by others. Here are some highlights from April’s weekly share-a-thon (long-form, poetry, and short-form):
Writer-promoted Short Form (150 words or less)
Our writers are prolific. If you love what you read from these lists, click their profiles and read some more!
Writers are having a GREAT time in our private Facebook group sharing their work and interacting with other Christian writers. If you’re a writer for Koinonia on Medium and not yet a member of our private Facebook group called Koinonia Medium Publication Writers, you’re missing out! Meet other writers and gain followers, fans, and friends.
If you want your writing featured in the monthly Newsletter, you should participate in this private group or write a post focused on the monthly Scripture Prompt (find the May Scripture Prompt post here).
Writing/Medium Tips (offered in our private Facebook group)
Robert McManus suggests that writers “trust the editor’s judgment, they improve you.” Indeed, they do!
