Editorial Focus

Established by combat veterans and maintained by a diverse board of veterans, military spouses, and writers compelled by themes of social justice and human resilience, the Wrath-Bearing Tree publishes essays, reviews, fiction, and poetry on military, economic, and social violence written by those who have experienced military, economic, and social violence or their consequences. 

Tips From the Editor

We seek to expand the conversation around violence, conflict, and war. We especially like work that is thoughtful and balanced when it comes to questions of diversity.
