About

42 members set this magazine as a Favorite.

Our mission at Ekstasis is to feature vibrant arts and letters that exhibit the spiritual, intellectual and aesthetic depths of Christian life. We categorize these pieces under the headings "Art Meets Academia" and "Kingdom Meets Culture". Ekstasis Magazine has featured writers profiled by the New York Times and published by The Atlantic, LA Review of Books, NPR, Image Journal and Christianity Today. Author Karen Swallow Prior says of the publication, “I’ve been published in a lot of places, but this journal just might be the most beautiful one.”

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. Duotrope listings do not imply endorsement or recommendation of the project being listed. Before submitting, you should use your own judgment to determine whether the project meets your standards.

  • 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.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
