Editorial Focus

For over a decade, Relief has helped shape the landscapes of faith and imagination for readers around the world. We feature fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, graphic narrative, and reviews by some of today’s finest literary practitioners, alongside emerging voices.

Relief eschews tidy “inspirational” writing that represses the troublesome and complex dimensions of our lives. Instead we are dedicated to human flourishing through literature.

Tips From the Editor

Above all, we want to be surprised, even thrilled, by work of artistic excellence—writing that shows the highest embodiment of craft while having something of deep importance to say.
