Mission Statement

Welcome to Segullah, a journal designed to encourage literary talent, provoke thought and promote greater understanding and faith among Latter-day Saint women. We publish insightful writings which explore life’s richness and complexity while reflecting faithfulness to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our aim is to highlight a variety of women’s perspectives within a framework of shared beliefs and values.

In Hebrew segullah signifies a cherished personal possession that is set apart and diligently cared for; it is a term the Lord has used with affection to describe His covenant people (Exodus 19:5, Psalms 135:4), and one we use here in remembrance of the blessings and responsibilities we receive in relationship with Him.

While not an official publication of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Segullah upholds its established leadership, doctrines and standards.

We here at Segullah are delighted to announce some exciting changes to the journal. As we enter our 9th year of publishing outstanding poetry and prose by Latter-day Saint women, Segullah is adopting an all-digital format with free on-line access.

What does this mean for you? You can enjoy new Segullah content each month on your home computer, laptop, or smart phone–no subscription required! Also, each month we’ll spotlight  some of our favorite content from our archives.

Although our format is evolving, our goals remain the same: to encourage and showcase literary talent, as well as to provoke thought and promote greater understanding and faith among Latter-day Saint women. We will continue to highlight a variety of women’s perspectives within a framework of shared beliefs and values as we publish insightful writings that explore life’s richness and complexity while reflecting faithfulness to the gospel of Jesus Christ.

In addition to producing monthly issues, Segullah will continue to sponsor contests in poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction. We encourage you to share Segullah with your friends and families, and invite you to submit your work.
