Publisher’s description: Ruminate is a quarterly magazine situated at the intersection of art and the Christian faith. We publish short stories, poetry, creative nonfiction, visual art, and book reviews.
Author David James Duncan calls Ruminate "A substantive and attractive magazine," and author Bret Lott says the writing is "resonant and mysterious."
In a review on NewPages, Rachel King writes: “Ruminate’s layout is beautiful: almost trade magazine size but sturdier, writing centered on white or grey or black pages . . . sketches littered between poems and an essay and a short story. The journal’s writing is equally beautiful."
Sample contributors include Fredrick Buechner, Scott Cairns, Luci Shaw, David James Duncan, Susanna Childress, and Shann Ray.
With fresh content and hand-wrought design Ruminate hopes to create an intimate alternative to the standard literary journal as well as challenge the assumptions about typical spiritual literature. So come, and chew the cud with us!
