Frequently Asked Questions

 What is a literary journal?

A literary journal, sometimes referred to as a literary magazine, is a publication that features creative literature and poetry. It is not a journal for your own personal writing, nor is it a commercial magazine.

What is flash fiction?

Flash fiction consists of short, imaginary stories.

What is creative non-fiction?

Creative non-fiction is a way of describing a story that is true, but told in a creative fashion.

Do I have to be well-read to enjoy your literary journal?

Not at all! Ever Eden Literary Journal is enjoyable for anyone who is willing to give creative literature a chance.

Is the literary journal made for women?

It is made by women. Although the feminine touches will likely appeal to women, it is not a product made for just women. Anyone can enjoy it.

I’m not Catholic. Would I be able to enjoy your literary journal?

Certainly! While written by Catholics, most pieces do not explicitly concern the ins and outs of our Faith. Rather, each piece is faith-informed, meaning it is written by those who live their life in the light of faith--their writings reflect this by drawing the reader to wonder, truth, beauty, and goodness.
