UPDATE: 2021 Poetry Competition

A huge THANK YOU to all those who submitted to the "Vultures & Doves: Social Issues of Our Time" poetry competition.

We received and considered five hundred and forty-seven (547) admissible entries. 

Judging process: Blind Judging
To ensure fair and transparent consideration for each poem, Andrew Scott kindly processed all submissions to ensure each entry was saved as a separate Word document with no identifiable markers. 

After six rounds of deliberation, the judges voted for the finalists. 

We are pleased to announce that we will reveal the finalists on this website on 1st October 2021.

Welcome to Valiant Scribe!

A repository of curated literary content that focuses on the Christian faith and social issues, independent of each other and sometimes complementary of the other.

I invite you to delve into our literary journal, our collections, showcase, bookstore etcetera which feature articles, books, essays, flash fiction, poetry, and short stories on authors' life experiences from around the world and from all walks of life.


More recently, we've found ourselves drawn to stories of African, and Asian leanings, both from the respective continents and from peoples of African, and Asian descent in North America. We feature mainly poetry that seeks to bridge the gap in our understanding of the different cultures in each continent (we are aware that each viewpoint is unique) and their lived experiences.

If you'd like to stay in the loop on our latest posts and whatnot, don't wait for a second longer and register to our mailing list at the bottom of this page.
