A man should learn to detect and watch that gleam that flashes across his mind from within, more than the lustre of the firmament of bards and sages. Yet he dismisses without notice his own thought, because it is his. In every work of genius we recognize our own rejected thoughts; they come back to us with a sort of alienated majesty."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Within each of us is a bard or sage struggling to find a voice. But we often dismiss our own ideas and dreams as not good enough, and we define what is and is not good enough based on those things reflected back at us from the media and society. We silence our inner bard, and with it our creativity and individuality.
At Bards and Sages Publishing, we hope to free the inner bard in both our readers and fellow writers. Besides our offerings of speculative literature and RPG materials, we provide resources and support to those interested in the written word. From our annual writing contest to book reviews and articles, we hope you find our site to be a valuable resource.
We would like to welcome
