The 2020 edition of The Saintly Review hopes to offer a window into the Emmanuel Community as it exists in a larger world. We seek individual perspectives which engage in a meaningful societal conversation through creative prose, poetry, and artwork.  Whether through a personal essay finding meaning in everyday moments, a short story filled with compelling characters, or a photograph capturing an idea, this is a space to make your voice heard. We invite creatives of all backgrounds and disciplines to share thought-provoking pieces that speak to the human experience, both within and beyond our campus walls. The Saintly Review aims to hold up a mirror to the Emmanuel community.  It’s time to reflect.
