Share a Story

Are you an alumnus/alumna, donor, staff or faculty member, or current student? Or do you know of someone who is? If so, and you have a compelling story that could make a great article for the Viewpoint, please let us know. We’re always looking for engaging stories about members of the PLNU community and would love to share them with our readers.

We ask that you please review previously published stories and articles for an idea of the type of content we tend to publish. If we think your story would be a great fit, we’ll reach out to you with next steps. Additionally, if you would like to write and submit the story yourself, please review our Writer Submission Guidelines.

To submit a story idea, please email with the following information:

  • The relationship (alumnus/alumna, faculty member, etc.) of the individual or group of individuals to PLNU
  • A brief paragraph explaining the story and why you think it would be compelling to our readers (we are generally interested in stories about individuals pursuing their callings to positively influence others, overcoming great obstacles and challenges, or being transformed by a deep and meaningful life experience)
  • Contact info (both email and phone if possible) of the individual or group of individuals included in the story

Alumni News and Updates
If you’re an alumnus or alumna and have shorter updates that you would like to have published in the Viewpoint magazine, please let us know! Share your major news and updates with us, including recent awards, career or school milestones, publications, or other great accomplishments (service-related, academic, athletic, artistic, professional, etc.). Although we can’t print all news updates due to space and content limitations, we do publish many of them in the Alumni section of the Viewpoint magazine.
