Journal Tikkun

We especially like stories, poems, and non-fiction pieces that deal with the spiritual, progressive, regenerative, and transformative elements of life. We’re also highly drawn to works about religion, Israel/Palestine, the Mideast conflicts, and social justice. Please keep in mind that ours is a global, multi-faith readership, and while we appreciate non-English expressions, the language needs to be broadly accessible.

Journal Time Of Singing: A Magazine Of Christian Poetry

TOS is now published by Wind & Water Press, and its purpose is to provide an outlet for literary Christian poetry, with "Christian" defined in the widest sense. Free verse and all forms are welcome. I encourage poets to take chances and write outside the religious box. Sermons that rhyme and greeting card style poems are not accepted.

We're a magazine not identified with any one region but international, drawing writers and contributing editors from all over the globe. Each issue seeks to be tantamount to an invitation to the greatest literary house party ever.
