Inkwell Literary Magazine is proud to present its third issue, “Uprising.” We are so thankful for this theme as we watch those who are rising up around the globe to fight for the health and welfare of our planet in big and little ways. We want to give you writing that inspires you to continue the fight, to face your inner demons, and to keep hope burning bright in a dark time.

    Our writers explore the idea of true courage being in falling for something just as much as it is standing for something. We want to remind you of the iron in your bones, the fire in your soul, the strength in your arms, but also the reason in your mind, the love in your heart, and the humility on your tongue.

    May our writing help you find the honor of martyrdom, the inspiration of the people who stand on the soap box, and the glory of the cause, not the battle.

    “Behold, all who are incensed against you shall be put to shame and confounded; those who strive against you shall be as nothing and shall perish. You shall seek those who contend with you, but you shall not find them; those who war against you shall be as nothing at all. For I, the LORD  your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, ‘Fear not, I am the one who helps you.’” – Isaiah 41:11-13 ESV
