Looking Back and Looking Forward

Happy New Year from all of us at Ampersand! It’s been a special year for us–Ampersand’s first year–and we want to take a moment to thank all of you who have submitted short stories, poems, reviews, art, and photography. You are why do we what we do!

This time of year is for looking forward to new chances and new opportunities, and we eagerly await 2016 as a time for us to meet new artists, grow and develop, and publish more great work.

It’s also a time for looking back at the past year, and we are grateful that so many of you have shared your work with us. We appreciate every photograph and every stanza, every painting and every line. So before barreling ahead into 2016, we thought we’d share some of our favorite work submitted in 2015.
