Publisher’s Description: Founded by Dan Curley at the University of Illinois, Ascent is an collection of fiction, poetry and essays that provokes and entertains the head as well as the heart. Now housed at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota, and edited by W. Scott Olsen, each issue features dramatic poetry, thoughtful essays, and fiction with a solid narrative. We publish as many first-time authors as well-known names. We promise good company to our authors, and work that matters to our readers. Now in our 37th year with a full history of honors, we have no rules except the belief that literature can transform the world, one reader at a time. We hope you'll join us.
