The Cresset, a journal of commentary on literature, the arts, and public affairs grounded in the Lutheran tradition, is currently accepting poetry submissions. 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 publish 4-6 poems per issue, 5 issues a year. For submission guidelines, please visit our website.
