The Other Journal welcomes the submission of critical essays, reviews, creative writing, and visual or performance art that encounter life through the lens of theology and culture; we seek pieces that consider the interaction of faith with contemporary life, art, politics, sexuality, technology, economics, and social justice. We are particularly interested in works which present creative, alternative views that may otherwise fall outside the margins of mainstream narratives. And although we primarily focus on perspectives within the Christian tradition, we invite dialogue with all who are interested in exploring the ongoing role of faith and spirituality in the world.
The Other Journal addresses a new theme in each issue. We select content that is thematically relevant, imaginative, well-researched, and of first-rate quality. If you are interested in contributing, please check out our issue-specific themes below and browse our archives for a better sense of the content that we accept.
If you would like to pitch an idea to our editors that addresses one of our issue topics, please e-mail us at email@example.com. You may also e-mail us about writing that is beyond the scope of our issue descriptions, especially writing that seeks to respond directly to current cultural events or a broader ethos.
