The Tone of our Journal: The Wayfarer’s mission is to chart the way for change by building and empowering a community of contemplative voices. A wayfarer is a wanderer whose ability to re-imagine the possible provides the compass bearings for those on their way.
The Wayfarer is the literary magazine of Homebound Publications. We publish a high-quality journal of literature and art that inspires and points the way for visionary-yet-practical change. We explore the spiritual progression we are currently experiencing as individuals and a global community.

Payment: Presently, we do not offer payment to our contributors. The Wayfarer is still an endeavor of the heart rather than the checkbook. The feature artist/photographer of the issue will be given a box of free contributor copies and those authors we feel contributor “headliner pieces” will be given contributor copies as well. In addition, certain solicited pieces featured will be chosen for a small honorarium.
