Publisher’s description: Ruminate is a reader-supported, contemplative literary arts magazine . We invite slowing down, paying attention, and living awake. We love laughter. And we delight in telling the truth, asking questions, and doing “small things with great love,” as Mother Theresa said.
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.
We know that our days are often busy and loud, yet we feel empty and asleep. Storytelling and art reminds us to slow down and live more fully awake with compassion, creativity, and curiosity. Join our community—let's stay awake together!
