Last week Concordia College’s Ascent shared a couple pieces of exciting news.
First: a special issue is on the way with twenty-five essays, twenty-one short stories, and a whopping eighty-one poems. This special issue is in celebration of their second piece of news: longtime editor W. Scott Olsen has announced his retirement from his position at the journal after twenty-three years at the helm.
Taking over in January 2020 will be Vincent Reusch, fiction writer and professor at Concordia College. We look forward to see what Reusch has in store for the literary magazine moving forward.
