Vol. 1: Origins

Vol. 1: Origins premiered in July, 2011. 15 contributions were feautred on a rolling basis throughout the month. As a nod to Ink Well’s own humble beginnings, we asked contributors to explore what the concept of “origins” meant to them on a personal level.

Maybe you’re envisioning a piece about beginnings—and endings, too. Maybe it’s a work that explores a moment in history. Ancestry. Inception. Dawn. Death. Square One. What inspires you? 

A big thanks to everyone who shared their work for the inaugural issue.
