Cherry Tree's aesthetic champions image-rich, sonically adventurous poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction which showcase whimsy alongside wit, risk, and urgency. The Literary Shade section features work that responds to and challenges oppressive social structures. The magazine's name recalls the apocryphal story of George Washington's ax, and the editors encourage writers to craft new and inventive ways to critique, to re-imagine, and to chop away at literary traditions.
