Publisher’s description: "High Desert Journal is a truly first-class venue for writing and visual art. It is a center of energy, hope and evolving community. How I would have loved it if a magazine like it had existed when I was trying to get started in Warner Valley, wondering if anybody was out there who shared my reverences and concerns."
HDJ is a voice for the landscape and the people of the interior West. Through beautifully designed pages of literature and visual arts, HDJ has created an evolving conversation that deepens an understanding of the people, places and issues of the interior West, a region rich in creativity, history and flux, yet often overlooked for its cultural resources.
Since 2004, HDJ has uniquely combined the elements of the West: elegance and grit, urban and rural, arid and wet. HDJ is a publication that:
- Elicits a sense of place, inspires connection and stimulates respect.
- Allows for discovery of literature and art that honors the myths and evokes the emergent West.
- Garners respect and reverence for strong content and design.
- Portrays the past and present for perspective of the assets and challenges of life in the West.
