We publish books of poetry and fiction that cast light into the darkness and illuminate the mysteries of reality.




We print writers who value the virtues of craftsmanship and remembering to enliven story and verse.

Our authors draw deeply from the riches of tradition to imagine poems and stories that confront experiences of the mundane and the transcendent, particular lives of persons and places, and universals of God and love and death.
