WELCOME TO VALIANT SCRIBE!
A literary initiative that provides a platform for content that focuses on social issues through a Christian lens. While primarily Christian, we aim to feature any work that addresses human rights and social justice issues from perspectives of hope and truth.
"...Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." Philippians 4:8.
We invite you to explore the various pages of our website to enjoy our collections, showcase, bookstore, and other offerings that feature articles, essays, flash fiction, poetry, and short stories on the lived experiences of authors from around the world and from different walks of life.
We publish new content weekly under the collections tab, and we annually publish a journal issue (electronic and print) in winter. For more details, you can consult our planned activities for 2023 here.
You can also register to our mailing list at the bottom of this page to receive the latest updates on our activities in your inbox.
