Our mission is to discover poetry, art, and literary reviews/essays that raise the hair on our arms, therefore our consciousness; Poetry that excites with passion, syntax, and craft; Art that remains an image in one’s eye. As poets living in Taos, New Mexico, U.S., amid astounding horizontal beauty of mesas, vertical allure of mountains, we are searching too for splendor; intricate and singing. Our vision is wide and inviting to both experimental and formal poetry, photography, visual art, sculpture, reviews and essays.

Seshat, whose image introduces the journal, is the Ancient Egyptian goddess of wisdom, knowledge, and writing. She was known by the epithet “Mistress of the House of Books” because she looked after the library of the gods and was the patron of all earthly libraries. She was also patron of all forms of writing.
