Sententia is Latin for sentence, but also means thought, meaning and purpose, all of which are relevant to the work we seek to publish. Sententia embraces the traditional and experimental in narrative, both in the books we publish as well as in the journal.
Paula Bomer is the Publisher and Editor of Sententia Books and Sententia: The Journal. She is the author of the novel Nine Months (Soho Press, August 2012), which received exuberant reviews in The Atlantic, Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, The Minneapolis Star Tribune and elsewhere. Her collection, Baby and Other Stories (Word Riot Press, December 2010), recieved a starred review in Publisher’s Weekly, calling it a “lacerating take on marriage and motherhood…not one to share with the Mommy and Me group” and Kirkus Review deemed it “a worthy, if challenging, entry into the genre of transgressional fiction” and O Magazine referred to it as a “brilliant, brutally raw debut”.
