Editorial Focus

Saddle Road is looking for reflective, authentic, imaginative literary voices embodying the rich history, diverse heritages and music of the English language. It welcomes the joyful, the celebratory, the praise song, the journey of discovery, the original encounter with nature. It is not open to Christian or other religious writing with the exception of meditative traditions; to anger, self-righteousness, sociological or political work.
