Mission Statement

As fishermen glide along Middle River toward the fine mist rising along the banks in the early morning light, Mt. Diablo rises over its marine layer cloak to greet the day.

OUR MISSION:  To become the trusted go-to voice for this journalistically underserved region.

Founded in 2018 by Rich Turner, SOUNDINGS Journal is an online publication telling stories unique to this region. We publish original poetry and fiction, tasty photography, and reports on issues and history concerning and involving the people of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, Central California, and beyond. 

SOUNDINGS is crowdfunded, relying on voluntary paid subscriptions and patron support to ensure its success rather traditional forms of advertising.
