When I bestride him, I soar, I am a hawk: he trots the air; the earth sings when he touches it; the basest horn
of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes.
~William Shakespeare, Henry V

Centaur, an Online Literary Journal, was created out of the desire to offer a creative
outlet for the exploration of the powerful, historical, sometimes life-changing connection that exists
between humans and horses. All horse people know that there is something very insightful and
intelligent going on behind the eyes of a horse, and the bond that is created between humans
and their equine companions is something unique and surprisingly strong. Art and the horse is a
wonderful and inevitable partnership, and Centaur Journal seeks to fully appreciate that connection.
This is a space for the artistic appreciation of the horse,
no matter what form that expression chooses to take.


CENTAURlit was created in 2009 by Becky Erpf, a lover of horses and literature.
Becky has been an owner of American Saddlebred horses for over 15 years, competing and working in the show circuits of North Carolina, South Carolina, Kentucky, and Virginia. Becky has her B.A. from the University of Central Florida and her M.F.A. from Spalding University. Her writing has appeared in numerous literary magazines including Amarillo Bay and The Chick Lit Review.
