Editorial Focus

Cherry Tree's aesthetic champions image-rich, sonically adventurous poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction which showcase whimsy alongside wit, risk, and urgency. Our Literary Shade section features work that responds to and challenges oppressive social structures. Our name recalls the apocryphal story of George Washington's ax, and we encourage writers to craft new and inventive ways to critique, to re-imagine, and to chop away at literary traditions. We  serve as both a site of protest and an archive of human thought and feeling.
