Great question! Watch this quick video to learn more about the process of becoming a DYM author and the DYM Pipeline process.
Looking for more details?! Here you go:
A team will review each submission asking, “Could I see this being used in our youth ministry?” Resources that are formatted according to submission guidelines, free from potential copyright issues, and a great match for the DYM store will be accepted to move forward in our editorial process.
Each submission is reviewed by our team to ensure everything top notch for the end-user! At any time during this process, we may contact you with requests for things like spelling/grammar fixes, content adjustments, and graphics changes.
Graphics Note: Instead of waiting for the DYM team to design the graphics, consider partnering with another design-savvy DYM Author. Visit the DYM Authors Facebook Group to get started.
What Timeline Can I Expect?
We’re incredibly grateful that so many youth workers trust DYM for their programming—and that so many of you want to contribute your resources to benefit other ministries! Due to the high volume of submissions we receive, the process can take anywhere from 2 weeks to 12 months. Teaching submissions take significantly longer than games, video, etc.
When you're ready, review the Submission Guidelines and adapt your resource accordingly, and then then send it our way at one of these links (which you can find at the bottom of the DYM Author page):
Thank you - the magic of DYM is youth workers like you, sharing their best resources with other youth workers to help them win!
