Living Lutheran Authors

Are you curious about contemporary Lutheran authors? Looking for Lutheran novelists? Poets, hymnists, or any other kind of Lutheran writer? Me too.

Below I am pleased to be building lists to raise awareness of all sorts of living, Lutheran authors. I mostly feature those who may be flying under the radar, using smaller publishers or self-publishing.

Comments and suggestions are welcome to keep this list up to date and accurate. Writers of all genres are welcome, including academic work.

You can also help by spreading the idea of Lutheran novelists, poets, hymnists, proofreaders, editors, etc.. Give their books as gifts. Donate books to your local library or, even better, write something yourself!

PS. If you are a Lutheran writer looking for Lutheran freelance proofreaders, editors, illustrators, indexers, etc., I have a page for that, too. I also have a blog roll for Lutheran authors here.
