~ Welcome to Ascent ~

Editor’s Note ~

Dear Everyone,

Here is something wonderful and rare.

Ascent is publishing a Special Issue!

Twenty-five essays.  Twenty-one short stories.  Eighty-one poems.

There is a reason for this celebration, too.  Last November, when I turned 60 years old, I spent some time reflecting on my various projects and it occurred to me that Ascent had become exactly the magazine I hoped it would be when I took over as editor 23 years ago.  I was proud of every work we published and deeply grateful for the opportunity to read and get to know so many insightful, provoking, soul-shaking writers.

That provoked a good feeling, yes.  However, accomplishment always asks the question What next? The good feeling also made it clear to me that it was time for other imaginations, other tastes, other hopes for the magazine.

So, starting January 1, Ascent will have a new editor.  My colleague Vincent Reusch, a fiction writer and professor here at Concordia College, will take over the future of the journal.  Just as the journal was undeniably an expression of founding editor Dan Curley’s idiosyncratic literary taste, and then Audrey Curley’s vision, and then my own, the journal will become Vinney’s.  I trust the magazine will evolve and grow well beyond my own imagination.

Look at this work!  I wrote to authors who have been important to the journal and/or writers whose work I have admired and asked if they had something to share.  I am overwhelmed and humbled by the response.  So, even though the phrase is easy, thank you to every writer here, every writer the journal has published since 1975, and every reader who has spent time with these pages.  It’s been a joy.

W. Scott Olsen
