Check out this rave review of Ruminate's Issue 09 (scroll to the bottom of the page) from NewPages, one of the top literary magazine databases in the country. The review begins by saying, "Ruminate's layout is beautiful." Not a bad comment to start things off, and something we happen to proudly agree with. And it keeps getting better from there, discussing the great work from our contributors and "pieces which demonstrate faith inside literature as well as faith in literature, a faith that literature can explain and inspire." We think NewPages reviewer Rachel King hit the nail on the head.
