Inkwell Literary Magazine presents the final issue of 2022: Survival! As the semester draws to a close, the Inkwell staff applauds the endurance of the student body during a time when giving up is the easiest solution. We congratulate our writers, designers, editors, and contributors for their efforts this year, and we also want to extend special thanks to our readers for their support. Inkwell’s mission survives because of you!

Survival: the state or fact of continuing to live or exist, typically in spite of an accident, ordeal, or difficult circumstances.

We are thrilled to share our staff’s last pieces of the semester, from one writer’s collage tracing his genealogy to the dystopian story of a man navigating unemployment. We’re also pleased to feature a short story by one of our poets, a poem by one of our creative nonfiction writers, and a guest submission in fiction!

You can read our issue below or download a PDF here. We’ll be back in January!
