About Us

Mission Statement

The Scriblerus seeks writing and art that explore the human experience with honesty and authenticity. Spirituality permeates our experiences and is therefore an inherent element in our art. We look for unique work that will connect on a personal level, provoke reflection about our own lives, and linger in the viewer’s mind after reaching the end. Your work need not have tidy Sunday School answers or easy resolutions to be published; struggles, complexity, and ambiguity are part of the human experience, too. Please send original, previously unpublished work. We accept simultaneous submissions, but ask that you notify us immediately if your work is accepted elsewhere. The Scrib desires to provide authentic art and writing while maintaining Christian values. Any artist or writer might need to portray a variety of beliefs and worldviews to accurately represent the diversity of our world. The Scrib draws the line at work that doesn’t show clear respect for the basic tenets of the Christian faith. The topic of sexuality is not off-limits, but we don’t publish graphic sexual content or work that condones sexual activity outside marriage. Swearing should be artistically essential, if used.

The Scriblerus is a publication of Greenville University in Greenville, Illinois. For more information on our guiding principles, please review Greenville University’s Core Values.
