Trees-of-Heaven is a little experiment in Texas literature and art. We are seeking original works about the State of Texas. We want to capture the heart, culture, and history of our great state through fiction, short stories, novellas, poetry, excerpts, creative non-fiction, and art.
"There's a tree that grows in Brooklyn. Some people call it the Tree of Heaven. No matter where its seed falls, it makes a tree, which struggles to reach the sky. It grows in boarded up plots and out of neglected rubbish heaps. It grows up out of cellar gratings. It is the only tree that grows out of cement. It grows lushly ... survives without sun, water and seemingly without earth."
