Image Journal

The Chrysostom Society has had a long relationship with Image. The journal’s founders, Harold Fickett and Gregory Wolfe, have been members of the Society for over twenty years. Many of the Society’s members have published in its pages.

Over the past two decades, Image has set an example of excellence as the world’s premier literary quarterly exploring the relationship between the Judeo-Christian tradition and contemporary art and literature.

Among Image’s literary contributors are Robert Coles, Annie Dillard, Horton Foote, Mark Helprin, Oscar Hijuelos, John Irving, Joy Williams, William Kennedy, Robert Morgan, Philip Levine, Dana Gioia, Kathleen Norris, Mary Oliver, Louise Erdrich, Robert Olen Butler, John Updike, Wim Wenders, Elie Wiesel, and Richard Wilbur. Image has published Pulitzer Prize winners, National Book Award winners, and a Nobel laureate.

Material first published in Image has appeared in Harper’s Magazine, The Best American Essays, The Pushcart Prize: Best of the Small Presses, The Best Spiritual Writing, The O. Henry Prize Stories, The Art of the Essay, New Stories from the South, The Best American Movie Writing, and The Best Christian Writing. Image has been nominated by Utne Reader for an Independent Press Award in the category of Spiritual Coverage.

In addition to its quarterly journal, Image sponsors seminars, a blog, an e-newsletter, the Milton Center, and the Glen Workshop, which has featured members of the Chrysostom Society as faculty.
