About Clayjar

The Clayjar Review is a Christian literary journal dedicated to publishing words of Life.

We believe that written words have power, and Christian poets, writers, & scribes have the unique ability to steward words for the purpose of intimate encounter with Jesus.

We are looking for words that are crafted into bridges to His heart, communion feasts, and swords that cut cords of bondage. We want the poems that take weeks to digest, the soulful stories full of lament & hope, the well-formed thoughts of the theologian, and the intimate invitation of One who says “Come, all who are weary”.

We here at The Clayjar offer up our blank pages to be filled with Life-giving words that impact hearts with the Gospel.

    Caroline // Editor

    Caroline Liberatore-Logan is a poet, writer, and librarian based in the homey northeast corner of Ohio. Her vocational pursuits are indicative of what she cares most deeply for: the written word, artistic and intellectual excellence, embodied presence in local communities, commonplace beauty, and redemption as articulated in the tangible, reconciling work of Christ. When she is not wrangling words or in the stacks, she enjoys romping around in the Cuyahoga River, spinning an album, spotting birds and woodland animals, savoring solitude and silence at home, enjoying fermented foods with her husband, and paying attention to the earth and people.
