Testimonials

“The Woven Tale Press is quickly becoming a mecca for writers and artists and those who understand the essential middle ground between the two.”

Beth Kephart, author of Tell The Truth. Make it Matter.

“Even more compelling than its gorgeous layout and sumptuous production quality, is the editorial aesthetic of The Woven Tale Press. Brilliant visual and literary art is presented with exquisite sensitivity. These pages are saturated with color and filled with intoxicating stories and poems. The Woven Tale Press offers genuine art: original, provocative, raw.

Sari Friedman, author

“I love The Woven Tale Press. It’s a neat little journal curating the best of contemporary art and literature.”

— Claire Meadows, poet and Editor-in-Chief/Founder of After Nyne Magazine


“Discovering The Woven Tale Press was like finding a sparkling gem in the ‘cybershere sandbox.’ It’s presentation of visual and literary arts is a treasure trove of creativity.  It is such a wonderful opportunity for those of us looking to join the creative conversation, and to learn from others.”

Carolyn Land, multi-medium artist

“You know that bad feeling you have when you think of all of the great art and writing that are bypassing your attention, escaping your notice?  Now we have The Woven Tale Press, one last Hail Mary Pass to catch, one last chance to get the best of what’s about to be missed, and I’m grateful.”

Beth Ann Fennelly, Mississippi Poet Laureate

“What strikes me about The Woven Tale Press is the way themes appear in each issue, without ever being named. The editors are clever and subtle with their juxtapositions of written and visual imagery, so that you have no choice but to make new connections between the works.”

Paula Goldman, photographer
