Penthos is an online literary journal that focuses on the challenges of grief and bereavement. Our mission is to serve as a relief for parents, siblings and guardians who have experienced the loss of a child. To do this, we utilize the power of literature and art in a way that provides healing and a connection for those suffering this type of pain. This journal is different because it allows individuals to express their emotions and empathize with others who may be struggling with their same pain. Our message is that you are not alone is this world.
