Brief Intro: from the website -
Aletheia (Greek for Truth) Writing Magazine is a quarterly publication focusing on the literary and artistic works of Christian teens, ages 13 to 19.
We are excited to offer Christian teens a healthy platform in which to express themselves, especially in a culture that so definitively shapes and saturates their worldview with unhealthy imagery and values.
In addition to the literary and artistic expressions of Christian teens, each issue offers a variety of unique features: a Writer's Challenge, the Featured Contributor, a book review, Glory to God for the Beauty of Nature, Ancient Ink, and an interview or other feature for edification and enjoyment.
It is nice to have a magazine that caters to Christian teens. Not only for reading and enjoying. But also for submitting their own original works. Stories, poems, photos, drawings. It is a nice chance to become a published author or artist.
It is nice for parents to be able to subscribe to a magazine that caters to Christian young people. Works by your Christian teens' peers. No ads for the latest styles and fads. No tell-all articles of the latest Hollywood stars.
I read the magazine with my daughters, 12 and 9 years old. They did find some of the articles interesting. But most of the articles were above their maturity level and understanding. So I would reiterate that this is a magazine for Christian TEENS, not for pre-teens. Several of the articles we read had a lot of symbolism, that was difficult for my daughters to follow. And some of the submissions were written on a higher reading level, with more advanced and uncommon words. So a good portion of it was too old for my daughters.
Some of the articles are on difficult topics. For example, a tribute to 2 young girls caught up in a prostitution slave ring in a foreign country. It was very difficult to read such a heartbreaking article, because I was constantly thinking of my children close to the same age. And my daughters had questions about how such a thing could happen. So be prepared for the possibility of some very thought-provoking topics.
I appreciate what the Muzekari's are doing with this great work.
