Ink In Thirds had a wonderfully successful launch with the help of this amazing community of writers and artists that continually inspire one and other. We published ten gorgeous issues in the first year. Then a bump in the road. On a personal level, my life fell apart. Or at least what I’d previously thought of as living. Staying true to my introverted nature, I knew it was time to take a step back and reassess EVERYTHING in my life.

I’ve spent the last nine months on a deeply personal inward journey, on what I can only call a soul mission. I’m Grace, by the way, and you can read more about my personal journey here if you’re so inclined. Or not, whatever.

Let’s skip to the exciting part . . . I received a message in regard to Ink In Thirds and how it had been missed in the literary community. What I can only refer to as divine intervention, energy alignment, or angels among us has rained down on Ink In Thirds and made this resurrection possible. For the sole purpose of respecting the privacy of all involved, I will leave it at this: I cannot begin to express the level of gratitude I hold for those who have made it possible to bring Ink In Thirds back from her slumber and to each of you that continue to grant her life-breath each month!

One thing I’ve learned on this journey called life: if it is a passion, it will not burn softly. It will ignite and burst into flames whether we go willingly or not. So do what you love. And that brings us here, together again!

I am THRILLED to announce Ink In Thirds is now back open for submissions! Send us your ink. Photos and words. We want them all.

All my love, gratitude, and ink,

  1. It sounds as though you have had a momentous year, and congrats on coming in through it stronger. Life goes by so quickly I truly believe we owe it to ourselves to be the best, and happiest version of ourselves we can be every single day. Albeit, some days we can’t be as good as others. That is one of the things we need to accept, and not beat ourselves up about it. Every day that we allow the negative things in life win, is a day we have lost, but obviously there are some things it takes us a bit to overcome.

    Also so glad to hear of the resurrection of Ink in Thirds. It has been such a beautiful and professional magazine that it was truly missed. I look forward to your next issue.
