Imago Dei/ image of God

Imago Dei is a collection of the best poems published in the journal Christianity and Literature over the past 60 years. They ask big questions: Why do we exist? Who is God? Where do we find God? What does the Incarnation mean? When does God speak to us, and why is God silent? The poets have in common an awareness of the Imago Dei embedded in human nature. More about the book is at the Abilene Christian University Press web site: [Click Search Books and type in the title.] The press is open to submissions of nonfiction Christian books. [On the same web site, click Contact Us, then Submissions.]

wonderful biog & writing opportunity: Pure Francis

I love the following biog from the Pure Francis website. It's a spoof, right? But the Pure Francis online journal evidently isn't. It's open to submissions of poetry, short prose, and visual art. No payment but hey, it's a publishing credit if they accept your stuff. Here's the link to submissions guidelines:


Pure Francis, the man, was born under mysterious conditions on a tramp steamer off the coast of Finland.  He stands 2 feet, 6 inches tall and counts fencing, origami, and collecting REO Speedwagon bootlegs amongst his vast array of hobbies.  He founded the print version of Pure Francis in May, 1908.  It folded in June, 1908.
