Editorial Themes

The editorial theme for each issue naturally occur in our heart-centered publications. We learned quickly that setting specific themes worked as a guideline, but rarely was the outcome. It became clear we do things a bit different than what most writers are accustom. Trusting in the process and allowing the divine messages to appear has brought a greater product than we could have planned.

C.K. Kochis, Editor and Publisher, is a strong believer in ‘following your heart’; especially when it comes to writing. The Writer’s Inspiration page offers a variety of ideas and motivation. When you sit down to write, and inspiration fills the pages – that’s what you are meant to submit. Those are the submissions we are seeking to publish. #PenToPaper
