An Embarrassment of Riches: The Good Letters Archives

Since 2008, Image Journal’s Good Letters blog has amassed over a thousand posts. In our archives, you’ll find a diverse collection: reviews that go deep, searching personal essays, reflections on art, faith, and culture.

On this week in 2009, you’ll find Jessica Mesman Griffith on separating her vocation as a creative nonfiction writer from the guilt of navel-gazing; Ann Conway on the brutal naivete on display in Generation Kill, a guest post from Annie Young Frisbee reflecting on “The Prisoner” and her own identity search in Greenwich Village; Joel Heng Hartse on writing about faith and popular music; and Santiago Ramos on hope and “Battlestar Galactica.”

And that’s just one sampling. If you began reading after our move to Patheos last year, go here to catch up on the posts you may not have seen.

And thank you for reading Good Letters.

Good Letters: Words. Made Flesh.

Welcome to Good Letters on Patheos. For over four years, we at Image, a literary/arts journal inhabiting the intersection between art, faith, and mystery, have published the daily Good Letters blog on our website, www.imagejournal.org. We want to give a big shout out to our readers who’ve followed Good Letters from Image—your support and enthusiasm have brought us to the vibrant public square that is Patheos.

To those of you who are reading Good Letters for the first time, we think you’re in for a banquet. The fourteen gifted writers who contribute to Good Letters span the gap between the world of faith and what poet Albert Goldbarth calls the “greasy doorknobs and salty tearducts” of daily life. You’ll find writing that gives flesh to mystery, writing that reflects your own daily experience, writing that reminds you why art is an essential part of being human.

Welcome to the table—join the conversation.
