Shards of Light

Undergraduate Literary and Art Journal


Shards of Light is JBU's first and only literature and creative art journal and is published every spring semester. The journal showcases work from alumni, faculty, staff, and current students and is run by a team of undergraduate students under the direction of Professor Patty Kirk. Our most recent volume was published in the Spring semester of 2021.

The world of creative content can be a dark place that promotes the estrangement of faith from creativity. Our work has the potential to renew our culture and fulfill our God-given mandate to further the Kingdom of God. With the hope of the Gospel and the grace of God, we seek to bring redemption in our words, in our art, and in our lives.
