TOS is published by Wind & Water Press, and its purpose is to provide a market for literary Christian poetry, with "Christian" defined in the widest sense. Free verse and all forms are welcome. I encourage poets to take chances and write outside the religious box. Wrestle with the important questions in faith. Sermons that rhyme and greeting card style poems are not accepted.
Tips From the Editor
Please study the craft, and remember this is literary style poetry, not canned rhyme or sermons in poem form.
Show me, don't tell me.
Be open to critique. I know what's best for my readers. If you don't agree, submit elsewhere. It's helpful to pick up a back copy to see what I like. Cover letter not needed, unless you want to list important credits. Your work will speak for itself.
