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 an 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 that attends the reading events we offer with great humility of spirit.
Our inspiration is Julian of Norwich, the Fourteenth-Century English mystic and Anchoress, whom 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 and calling of our mission as a Twenty-First Century 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 and mission Saint Julian Press, dreams of opening far and wide the doors to an artistic dialogue and exchange. And to building an ever-expanding inclusive community locally and globally that cultivates a meaningful and transforming conversation, one that crosses traditional boundaries, secular societies, and encourages an interfaith exchange.
Saint Julian Press is answering a call in the inmost 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 passion 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 with poets, writers, and readers alike. 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 artists, poets, and writers whose learned arts and voices touch on transformation.
Our dream is to share transforming works of art, offering them to the public with a radical openness to many creative, innovative, diverse, and known literary and artistic voices. There are numerous transforming voices, whom we believe need to be heard, seen, and treasured. Our wish is to share the transforming and literary works of artists, poets, and writers through public receptions, readings, performances, books, and Internet publishing, to help share these creative and artistic works with the world, building new communities locally and globally.
Our sincere desire is to offer and share these artistic works through several imaginative avenues a year, giving the public a unique and visionary value to art, language, living, our culture, and society. Where we share this creative vision with our communities and neighbors, people with whom we live and breathe and share our lives with together, new and known literary voices and transforming art.
