Why a Christian Art and Lit Magazine?
For a long time, I struggled to find a place for my writing, which was often quirky and straddled genre and literary fiction. As Christian book clubs for romance and speculative fiction/fantasy and current events magazines began popping up, it seemed there wasn’t much out there for writers and readers of short fiction, literary fiction, and poetry that dealt with Christian themes in a thoughtful, reflective (and fun!) manner. Also, digital magazines are easy to distribute, which appealed to my desire to feature top-quality writing and visual art. So, I decided to create my own digital magazine to provide a platform for the “lost voices” of Christian fiction writers and artists. The Lost Pen Magazine covers fiction, visual art, poetry, testimonials, articles, and more.
