After almost a decade as a branch of the Promontory Artists Association, the Looking Closer website is launching itself out from under its non-profit status and establishing itself as an independent Web site.

What this means to you is that you’ll never have to type out promontoryartists.org/lookingcloser again.

It’s now as simple as this: lookingcloser.org.

Currently, that address points you to the same Web site that’s been live all these years. But in a few weeks, the site will be its own entity, cleaned up, and improved.

Am I excited? Oh yeah. But right now I’m knee-deep in paperwork, learning about the delicate art of moving a Web site and taking the reins.

The folks at Promontory have been relentlessly supportive from Day One, and Looking Closer is what it is largely due to their encouragement and provision. I’m eternally grateful.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.

    I can’t quite put my finger on it, but there’s something that definitely grates on me about Staub’s repeated use of the term ‘Jedi Christian.’
