We had the opportunity to review Aletheia Writing Magazine, Creativity for Christian Teens. Aletheia is the Greek word for truth, neat title, huh? 🙂 This magazine consists of stories, poems, book reviews and much more – ALL contributed by Christian teens ages 13 to 19. The majority of the actual stories are several pages in length while the poems are normally about a half page. The illustrations are done in a unique manner and in color!
When asked about the magazine, ds15 answered in the usual 15-year-old boy manner, “Yea, it was good.” When asked why, he said it had neat stories, even about fantasy; stories without anything inappropriate. [A note from mom: it was NICE to hear this! These days it is really hard to find things for teens that do not have inappropriate things!]
Taken directly from their website:
Aletheia Writing Magazine is a quarterly publication focusing on the literary and artistic works of Christian teens, ages 13 to 19*.
We are excited to offer Christian teens a healthy platform in which to express themselves, especially in a culture that so definitively shapes and saturates their worldview with unhealthy imagery and values.
Moreover, we’re interested in publishing teen work in a quality manner while preserving its honesty and integrity- we’re not interested in dumbing down or overly sanitizing the writing we receive.
But whether teens use their writing to explore the darker realities of life or celebrate the brighter ones, their writing, in the end, must contain hope.
In addition to the literary and artistic expressions of Christian teens, each issue offers a variety of unique features: a Writer’s Challenge, the Featured Contributor, a book review, Glory to God for the Beauty of Nature, Ancient Ink, and an interview or other feature for edification and enjoyment.
Do you have a teen that loves to write? If so, have them check out the FAQ page…and then, Lord willing, submit their writing – maybe it will get published in an upcoming issue of Aletheia Writing Magazine!
The subscription price for this magazine for those in the US is $26 per year ($29 for those in Canada), subscription consists of four issues a year with 40 color pages. This price includes shipping and handling.
