Josh Tuttle published an article in the December 2022 issue of Christianity & Literature.

Here is what Josh has to say about the article and its genesis:

My article is titled “Toward a Practical Definition of Theopoetical Poetry,” and may be of interest to anyone interested in the intersections of faith, spirituality, and poetry (particularly the practicing poets among us). The article wasn’t published in a special themed issue, but it turned out to be one of those cases where the table of contents lines up as if it had been, so I am in good company. 

The thinking for the article began many years ago when I was an editorial assistant for Rock & Sling: A Journal of Witness, and became a seminar project in John Marsh’s contemporary poetry class in 2019. (I mention this last bit to encourage everyone in the lower cohorts to put their work out there! I let it sit in a drawer for two years for fear it wasn’t ready but when I finally sent it in it got published within a year with only two rounds of revisions.)
