Inkwell Literary Magazine is proud to present its first issue of the 2023–2024 school year, “Disturbance.”

Disturbance: an interruption of a state of peace, quiet, or calm.

Whether it’s a pirate’s checkered past, a little girl’s ghost stories, or our own very real fears for the future, this issue demonstrates not only our writers’ unique approaches and perspectives but also the enduring hope we as believers can always claim, no matter how pervasive the past, perturbing the present, or frightening the future.

We thank you for your continued readership, and we hope you enjoy “Disturbance.” A PDF copy is available to read here.
