Editorial Focus

The Cresset, a journal of commentary on literature, the arts, and public affairs, explores ideas and trends in contemporary culture from a perspective grounded in the Lutheran tradition of scholarship, freedom, and faith while informed by the wisdom of the broader Christian community. We publish 4-6 poems per issue.

Tips From the Editor

We publish both religiously themed poems and poems on other themes that interact with their subject matter in a fresh, interesting, and contemporary manner. Please no inspirational verse or biblical paraphrase. If you’re not sure whether your work will fit at The Cresset, please read the poems in the most recent issues. We prefer submissions through Submittable.
