About Saint Katherine Review

Our guiding principle at Saint Katherine Review is Inquiry seeking Wisdom.

We believe that the writer’s primary purpose is to discover meaning and that the best and most enduring literature rises out of an author’s desire to come to terms—albeit provisional terms—with the inexhaustible truths that animate all things.

We find that less satisfying works are often the result of an author’s presuming that he or she need only articulate what he or she already knows. At Saint Katherine Review, we want to present work that is not afraid to ask difficult questions, to press into the mystery.
