ClarkClan Thoughts

     Aletheia Writing Magazine is a beautiful, professional magazine. Sarah (14) and I both enjoyed reading the stories and articles contained within it. We reviewed the Fall 2011and a special electronic Summer 2011 issue.

     When I gave Sarah the Fall 2011 magazine, she eagerly took it and began reading. When I asked her about it later, she stated she really enjoyed it. She particularly like the Featured Contributor’s story called “Awake The Tale of Alatar the Blue”  Sarah is a fan of the fantasy genre and this story really resonated well with her. She also stated that she liked the opening story called “Ordinary”.

     Sarah has tried her hand at fiction writing from time to time. I think reading this magazine reawakened that longing within her. She has been jotting down little stories and vignettes since. She also has an artistic bent and I am going to encourage her to submit either one of her paintings or photographs.

    In the Fall 2011 issue both Sarah and I found the article “Into the Artist’s Studio with Joe Goode” to be fascinating. This article was an interview with Joe Goode who described the joys and struggles of being an artist. The interview was accompanied by Joe Goode’s illustrations and sketches.


     Sarah and I both feel comfortable recommending this magazine to others. As a matter of fact, Sarah is planning on loaning the magazine to a friend tomorrow who loves to write. Sarah thought her friend would really enjoy the magazine and may want to submit something herself.

     Aletheia Writing Magazine does have a disclaimer on the first page of the magazine.  It states:

At Aletheia Writing Magazine, we are excited about our contributors and the articulation of their Christian faith and experiences in writing. This magazine is geared toward youth 13-19. Because contributors’ ages vary, the maturity level of situational content may likewise vary.

     We did not find any material that was objectionable for our family. Instead we found a professional, well thought out magazine designed to inspire teens to further their writing goals. 


     We were not the only family reviewing Aletheia Writing Magazine. Many other members of The Old Schoolhouse Homeschool Crew reviewed it at well.

As an Independent contractor for The Old Schoolhouse and member of TOS Homeschool Crew I received a print copy and a download copy of Aletheia Writing Magazine for free, in exchange for my honest review of their product.
