As the semester draws to a close, the Inkwell Literary Magazine staff is feeling the pressure of the last few weeks of classes. We hope that our readers are able to draw inspiration from our next and final theme of the semester: empowerment!

Empowerment: the process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one's life and claiming one's rights.

We can't wait to read about our writers' most empowering moments, whether it be the mastery of a new skill, discovering a passion, or taking a brave stand for the vulnerable. We'll be sending out a special sneak peek of the issue on April 29th!

Send in your submissions for "Empowerment" to and be sure to look for our last issue of the 2021-22 year on May 6th!
