About: Sojourners does not accept many unsolicited articles, though contributors come from a range of backgrounds, published and unpublished. One page of poetry is published each issue, and Sojouners is looking particularly for “poems that intersect with or illuminate the perspective of [their] magazine, that reflect simple celebrations of life and beauty, and/or are geared toward particular seasons (i.e. Advent) or significant days (Hiroshima anniversary, MLK Jr. Day, etc.).”

Analysis: The mission of Sojourners is “to articulate the biblical call to social justice, inspiring hope and building a movement to transform individuals, communities, the church, and the world.” Their reader base is primarily progressive Christian adults.
