What are our goals here at Story Embers?


I was at a writing conference a couple weeks ago and people asked me this question a lot. Given how many things we’re trying to accomplish, it’s not the easiest question to answer. That’s why at our first annual staff retreat this summer, we created a video explaining what Story Embers is and how we want to help Christian writers grow.


Whether you’ve been with us from our launch in April or have recently found us, we’d love for you to check out the video to see what we have planned and gain further inspiration in your own journeys as Christian storytellers. We have big visions for what we hope to achieve and have some resources in the pipeline that we’re excited to share with you these next few months!

Josiah DeGraaf is the editor-in-chief of Story Embers and the fiction content manager of The Young Writer. He writes because he’s fascinated by human motivations and loves to take normal people, put them in crazy situations (did he mention he writes fantasy?), and then force them to make difficult choices. Someday Josiah hopes to write fantasy novels with worlds as imaginative as Brandon Sanderson’s, characters as complex as Orson Scott Card’s, character arcs as dynamic as Jane Austen’s, and themes as deep as Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s. In the meantime, you can find him teaching writers at Ink Slinger Academy or writing short stories at his website as he works toward achieving these goals.
