Saint Julian Press
Saint Julian Press as a literary and educational organization embraces a vision to create a local and worldwide community, by engaging in a literary and artistic dialogue that promotes world peace, cultural conversations, and an interfaith awareness, appreciation, and acceptance. In our mission as a new literary imprint we hope to identify, encourage, nurture, and share transformative literature and art of both past and living masters. While giving emerging artists, poets, and writers a place they may come home to and share their work.
The Morrow Chapel at Trinity Episcopal Church in Midtown Houston has been the venue for Saint Julian Press quarterly events since our inception. It is one of the most inspiring artistic and sacred spaces in the Houston area, a space we are immensely grateful to the church for sharing with us and the public who attend the reading events we offer with great humility of spirit.
Our inspiration is Julian of Norwich, the 14th century English mystic and anchoress, who scholars believe was the first woman to write a book in the English language. Her major work, the Sixteen Revelations of Divine Love, touches at the heart of our mission as a contemporary literary imprint.
Our hope is to publish transformative literature and art that symbolizes a radical openness to the literary and visual arts, cultures, and faiths across humanity. With such a vision Saint Julian Press dreams of opening far and wide the doors to a cultural dialogue and exchange. And to build an inclusive community locally and globally that cultivates a meaningful and transforming conversation, one that crosses cultural boundaries, secular societies, and encourages an interfaith exchange.
Saint Julian Press is answering a call in the deepest sense of that word, for words and artistic expressions, we are in this endeavor for the pure pleasure of art and writing that will serve to transform the world, our world. This is a calling in the deepest sense of that word, a call for a transformed world. Join us in this journey where you will discover new voices and songs of transformation.
Saint Julian Press is just beginning, planting the first seeds. Our idea is to focus on literary and transforming artistic works that inspire and create lives of compassion and creativity. Our wish is to work with poets and writers whose literary art and voice touches on transformation.
Our dream is to share transforming works, offering them to the public with a radical openness to innovative, diverse, and known literary and artistic voices. Transforming voices, who we believe need to be heard, seen, and treasured. Our wish is to share the transforming and literary works of poets, writers, and artists through public receptions, readings, performances, and Internet publishing, to help share these creative and artistic works with the world, building new communities locally and globally.
Our sincere hope is to offer and share these works through several literary avenues and events a year, giving the public a very unique and visionary value to language, living, our culture, and society. Sharing with our communities and neighbors, with whom we live and breathe and share our lives with together, new and known literary voices and transforming art.
