Editorial Focus

Since 1908, The Home Forum has been a section of The Christian Science Monitor dedicated to nonfiction and poetry. The object of the Monitor is (in the words of its founder, Mary Baker Eddy) "to injure no man, but to bless all mankind." The Monitor is a balanced news-gathering operation with its own network of reporters; it is not a church organ. The Home Form section attempts to amuse, educate, inspire, delight, engage, comfort, enlighten. It's a conversation with a well-educated and compassionate friend. The section also hosts the Monitor's single, clearly labeled, religious article.

Tips From the Editor

We must be very selective, as our space is limited. We mostly publish creative nonfiction in the form of personal essays, along with the occasional poem. We are looking for upbeat essays and poems, but nothing overtly religious.
