Inkwell Literary Magazine is proud to present our first issue of 2021, “Initiation.”

Initiation: "The action of beginning; moving from innocence to experience or maturity; recognizing a truth."

Our writers have thought long and hard about what it means to begin a new phase in your life. We hope you’re inspired by their works to take the first step, to set out on a new journey, and to push through that fiery trial to come through stronger on the other side.

As our world is rapidly changing before our eyes, we’re looking at 2021 as a fresh start: a new beginning for our campus, our nation, and our world. We pray this issue helps you look at this year in a different light – the light of hope that God has something incredible waiting for us on the other side.
