The Clarion Review is a lively review of contemporary cultural issues. Through essays, opinion pieces, book reviews, fiction, and poetry we focus on what it means to live in and as a body. And we support a view of human life that takes the body seriously as being bound up in our existence. We have featured the works of Wendell Berry, Peter Augustine Lawler, Allen Guelzo, Vigen Guroian, and Rev. John Bombaro, to name a few. We also publish numerous works from amateur poets and writers.
The Clarion Review is a publication of the American Orthodox Institute (AOI). While Clarion’s editorial bent is not explicitly Eastern Orthodox Christian, in the confessional sense, there is a consistent phronema–or mindset–in the way the two organizations see the world. We work hard to publish well known and amateur authors that share traditional Judeo-Christian understandings of the life, culture, and existence: Christian humanists and their allies.
We hope you will join us in engaging modernity critically through our essays, poetry, and social commentary. Please leave your comments after reading a poem or article and let us know what you think of our journal through snail or e-mail.
