Golden Wheat Literary was founded in an effort to help connect Christian writers with the vast market of both Christian and secular publishers. To that end, the manuscripts that are accepted do not need to be overtly Christian, but must exist within the realities of Christian faith. If your manuscript's elements can all be true without any part of God's Word needing to step aside or be discounted, it is acceptable for submission.
