About Branch

Branch is a literary publication committed to giving today’s critical thinkers breathing room to trade chaos for creativity, and exhaustion for real inspiration through poetry, memoirs, and alternative news stories that highlight the redeeming side of human nature. Here, I hope hungry minds will find and share work, from me and from great poets I admire, to re-connect with gratitude, and each other.
