Write for your church newsletter. Whether you write opinion pieces, news articles, feature articles, jokes,or comics, all these are opportunities to get your writing published. I first wrote articles for our church newsletter and later became the editor. I developed experience planning each month edition, assigning articles to other writers and gathering photos for each issue. You could also offer to write articles about your local church news for the denomination’s publications. Mine has several and I have had articles in the general magazine, the magazine for leaders and a regional magazine. Write songs for the music department if that is what you write.
If you don’t belong to a church, any club or social group can offer the same experience as long as it is a regular publication.
