Advertise in Image Journal

Image is a quarterly literary and arts journal which stands at the crossroads of faith and imagination. It is unique among literary publications not only for its focus on religion and art, but for its high production values. Image’s impact is directly related both to its content and to its outstanding graphic design. Readers see text printed on acid-free paper and visual art reproduced through the four-color process.

Image features fiction, poetry, memoir, and interviews, as well as essays on painting, sculpture, architecture, music, dance, and theater.

In twenty years, Image has become a dynamic force not only in religious circles but in the American public square. It stands at the forefront of the growing movement of those who embrace the spiritual dimensions of art. Image is distributed in Barnes and Noble across the country, many independent and university bookstores, and on the Zinio digital reader platform alongside other major literary journals.
