About CFT’s Untold Volumes Poetry Series

Untold Volumes is a feminist theology poetry series from a variety of perspectives and faith traditions, featuring both established and emerging poets.

Untold Volumes poems explore the intersections of revisionism and remembrance, celebrations and speculations, doubts and fury, psalms and midrash. Readers are invited to engage with the difficult questions and challenges inherent in spiritual experience as the poetic lens condenses powerful insights and propels us toward rediscovery of the familiar.
