has curated pieces since 1982 that are both peculiar and gorgeous without compromising craftsmanship and excellence. Averse to gratuitous violence, language, and sex, we look for smart pieces that treat sensitive subjects with maturity and respect. Our favorite submissions explore refreshing takes on both the fantastic and the everyday. As a staff firmly rooted in following Jesus Christ and His teachings, we publish and celebrate works from people of all religious perspectives, countries, cultures, ethnicities, sexual orientations, genders, backgrounds, and experiences. Inscape is the home of the bizarre, believing, and beautiful.


Inscape has published a bi-annual issue since 1982. You can read our past issues in our archive.


Our blog features tips on how to submit & publish your work, writing tips, and interviews with writers.
