Embers Igniting 8

About

Embers Igniting is a literature and fine art magazine out of Albuquerque, NM. We do three things: 1. Publish real, relevant, radical writing and art for the glory of Christ. 2. Provide resources and topics of discussion for writers and artists. 3. Engage in the community of creators, both locally and globally. We publish fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and visual art. In writing, we look for the light in the darkness and the darkness in the light; deep truths revealed through good old fashioned story-telling; and humor that doesn’t try too hard and wit that cuts. While we are a “Christian” magazine, we look for the spiritual tones in all submissions. Above all, we’re interested in quality story-telling.

Poetry Temp Closed

We’re attracted to verses grounded in concrete imagery—we cringe at abstractions like “love,” “beauty,” and “evil.” Instead of saying “evil,” show us what evil tastes like. We publish both free verse and form poetry, but rhyming should be done subtly and with skill.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • For novel/collection publishers, it is standard to submit a cover letter, synopsis, and sample instead of the full manuscript. Do this unless otherwise instructed.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via or email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
