New Website!

Hello Everyone! This is Rachel Ramm, the web and graphic designer for KP. If there’s anything you don’t like about the way our website looks, if you hate the First Novel mag pages, or are disgusted by the cover layout, you know who to blame. Anyway, I am in the process of transferring all of our wonderful content over to this new site, so for a little while you will notice some things missing (as I’m writing this, the images have not yet been uploaded), as well as some smashing new things added (no, I don’t think I’ll tell you about those… I’d rather keep you in suspense!) As always, KP is a team effort all driven by the support of our superlative community (that means you!) so THANK YOU! And thanks in advance for your patience as we’re working on the new site. If you have any thoughts or suggestions, please feel free to leave a comment below, or send us an email at kingdompenmag {at} gmail {dot} com. Cheers!...

We Want YOU!

By Reagan Ramm Kingdom Pen has come a long way. I first heard about it a little over a year ago when it was just starting out and only had 30 subscribers. A friend of mine mentioned to me that Eli King had started an eMagazine for encouraging young authors to write for Christ. I was like, “He did what? That’s incredible!” I never would have thought of starting such a thing, or that creating a legitimate magazine was even possible. Probably because my subconscious would have told me it wouldn’t work, or I couldn’t do it, or it wouldn’t do any good. If Eli had these same doubts, they didn’t hold him back. He was confident God was telling him to start an eMagazine for teens, and that’s what he did. I jumped on board three issues into it. When Eli began to tell me about the publication and his vision, I was instantly inspired and wanted to join him. My sister, Rachel Ramm, and her award winning artistic talents also joined the project, and then together with our committed writers, we set out to see what God would do. It’s hard to believe that was already a year ago. So much has changed and God has blessed Kingdom Pen so much. Our subscriber base has increased by over 1,000%, and the list of people who have contributed and helped to...

Battling Peer Pressure as a Christian Writer

By Hannah Mills Peer pressure is a dangerous thing, even within the church and even within the writing community. Last month I was blessed to be one of one hundred seventy-six students attending the One Year Adventure Novel Summer Workshop, and one of the speakers, Mark Wilson, touched on the subject of peer pressure and “coolness”. He said that trying to be cool, to fit in, can often very easily destroy our hunger and love for learning and our thirst for the “useless”, but useful, knowledge. It can destroy other things too, I realized. Like standing out in our...

KP Book Review: Ender’s Game

Far and away, Science Fiction is my favorite genre to write. However, when it comes to reading Sci-fi, there’s a lot of…weird stuff out there. Not only that, but much of it is cliche or soaked to the bone in Humanism.  Because of this, my experience reading Sci-fi has been a mixed bag. That being said, Ender’s Game was definitely one of the gems. I stumbled upon Ender’s Game after reading a book on writing Science Fiction by the same author, Orson Scott Card. Through reading his “how to” book, I discovered that Card himself had written an award winning Science...
