Journal Relief: A Christian Literary Expression

Our goal is to embrace real, gritty, painful, wonderful, this-side-of-heaven life. Too many Christian publications opt for clichés and placating expressions of the ideal. Relief seeks to bridge the gap between mainstream publishing and cotton-candy Christianity.

Journal Remarkable Doorways Online Literary Magazine

At Remarkable Doorways, we seek to publish any doorway you’ve created into another world, a character’s mind, or anything else remarkable. This includes prose, poetry, screenplays, art, comics, film, a mix of the six and anything in-between or beyond. We lean towards the literary, but we also love the weird. Give us character study, words we’ve never heard before, people with cat-faces, cats with people-faces, offbeat heartbreak, and the genuine juxtaposed with the insane. Open up a doorway for us, and we'll open one for you.
