Editorial Focus

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.

Tips From the Editor

Relief's goal is to publish poems, creative nonfiction, short stories, graphic narrative, and images that push the envelope beyond stereotypically “fluffy” Christian writing, so please feel free to stand out on the edge.
