Pure in Heart Stories
Pure in Heart Stories is a literary and art magazine for families, with a Christian worldview. It publishes short stories, poetry, visual art, and more by adults, teens, and children—for readers 6 years old and beyond.
Pure in Heart accepts work from adults, kids, and teens that is appropriate for all ages. We accept work from both Christians and non-Christians, so long as the submission has a Christian theme or demonstrates Christian morals. A piece does not have to be overtly Christian.
We like silly and fun, but we also like serious. We like depth. We want work that engages with kids without talking down to them.
I've been writing in one form or another since very young. my parents, a Baptist Minister and his trusty companion, Mother, thought i was on drugs, which i was, i mean come on it was the sixties. anyway vietnam came along and lucky me was sent to Germany for a 3 year tour. i got to do the whole Europe thing which was super cool. all of my life experiences are all bunched up in my head and i struggle to sort them out via poetry and/or short story fiction/nonfiction. I've been keeping jounals the whole time.
I've attended every possible writers group, some bad/some good, and taken what i thought useful. having said, i self published my first book of poems called, 'habiltual contrition,' which let me air some of my critiques/observations about organized religion and/or life experiences such as the death of family members, etc. i've retired from my job of 35 years and thankfully i'm happy writing each day, playing my guitar, and/or painting/assembling collages. i decided to self publish once i experienced the, 'institutional snobbery' thats become concretized within the industry. living in the south i'm accustomed to southern aristocracy which Tenessee Williams brought to life in such brilliant fashion. apparently there exists a secret society that has been sent by the creator of the universe to protect humanity from bad art. and though i do appreciate their efforts i went around the obstacle and am now learning about marketing. which sucks. my book is on Amazon and B&N and i'm still learning and writing. Picture this..
I've self-published four books (penname Will Martin) and had a few short stories and even a poem accepted for publication.
We are dedicated to publishing Christian prose, poetry, creative non-fiction, and flash fiction. While one's work does not need to be directly Christian, it must be tactful to our mission statement. We also publish fine art photography. We accept work from emerging and established writers. Please wait two weeks after your acceptance/pass email to submit new work after your first submission.
We accept rolling submissions for our online publication. For our annual print edition, we read submissions from August 1st-December 31st. Please send your best work.
Hola! I'm a senior writer and poet and my aim is to spread peace and happiness through my writings. I've self-published some of my poems on a few poetry websites.
Looking forward to some inspiration, feedback, and tips in a writing group :)
I am a multigenre writer who writes poetry and prose. I have an MFA in fiction; however, I have a strong almost double major emphasis in poetry. I am interested in narrative poetry as a form to enrich fiction. I am currently working on a novel set in the 1930s South, primarily Little Rock, AR with an adventure to Scottsboro, AL. I have listed my interests as historical and regional to create a writing group also writing within this era. As a Black writer, my focus is on Black community in the novel. I am particularly interested in the ways that racism as a background impacts the foreground of the emotional lives and personal development of the characters alongside the family bonds formed. I have a complete draft of my novel and am currently outlining and working more deeply on characterization. I’m looking for a a characterization and outlining group to join the journey!
My writing has included many genres: poetry, playwriting, spiritual reflection, essay. I am at a stage where I want to go deeper, have more focus, and publish with regularity. I desire to focus my writing on spirituality in contemporary times -with a focus on ecumenism. I seek fellowship and accountability with flike-minded writers who wish to produce creative work with consistency and a practice of submitting for publication. My training has included the University of Iowa Summer Writing Workshop (Poetry) and steady membership in a writing circle here in Wisconsin. I will continue with that group while at the same time expanding my writing community.
