Heart of Flesh Literary Journal is edited by Veronica McDonald — a published fiction writer, poet, self-taught visual artist, mom, and born-again Christ follower. Veronica graduated from American University in Washington D.C. with an M.A. Degree in Literature, and has since accumulated a growing list of published work, two chapbooks, and dozens of notebooks full of stories and poems.  She is currently working on her poetry and a novel, and on connecting with other editors, writers, and artists.

Veronica is also the editor of a new literary magazine for children ages 6-11 (written by adults) called Pure in Heart Stories. Look for its inaugural issue on May 14, 2021.

Veronica intends to keep the Heart of Flesh Literary Journal site ad-free, and the journal free to read online. Any donations or purchases are used to help cover hosting costs, with the exception of a small percentage going to Mission of Hope, a “residential Christian program focusing on men and women struggling with drug and alcohol dependency.” Heart of Flesh, however, is not affiliated with Mission of Hope or its ministries.
