About

We are a Christian literary journal and small press in the evangelical tradition which publishes fiction, poetry, philosophy articles, homilies, visual art, and nonfiction/creative nonfiction. In addition to the journal, we hope to eventually begin publishing novels, short story compilations, poetry chapbooks, philosophical anthologies, homiletical anthologies, and visual art chapbooks. We primarily publish work concerning Christian theology or work which deals with the Christian life, i.e., the trials and triumphs of daily life with God. We hope to uplift young or undiscovered Christian authors, philosophers, and artists, and provide a space for them to interact and grow from one another.

Fees Notice: This project charges fees (or requires purchases) for all submissions and does not offer monetary payment for accepted submissions.
