OWS INKED AUTUMN 2016 3
Letter from the Editors
Welcome to the Autumn edition of OWS Inked. It’s
been a busy season for us and we imagine it’s been the
same for you, too. Our company, OWS Ink, LLC, is now
fully licensed and accepting submissions in multiple
genres (see the OWS News page for more information).
We’re also on the verge of releasing a new anthology
with selections from among our tribe for your enjoyment.
Speaking of your enjoyment, that’s what this issue is all

that character claimed to write about. Sometimes, the
worst curse one could receive is not a grisly death.
We have a new call for submissions opening with this
journal, too. We will be choosing just six stories to go into
our January edition of the journal, which will be themed

OWS News page for more information or, if this challenge
doesn’t strike you, be sure to join the conversation over
at OurWriteSide.com. Our friendly community is always
talking craft or sharing stories in some form or fashion.
We’d love to hear your voice as well. We’ve also recently
become afliated with Brains to Books and have a special
announcement within these pages about that.
Of course, if you know us at all, you know it isn’t always
just about play. We have some helpful articles for you
from A.M. Rycroft and Joshua Robertson. We also have
some chilling poetry offered by Stacy Overby, Stephanie
Ayers, and A.L. Mabry.
In addition to providing writers and readers with a safe
community in which to explore art in many forms, our
goal remains to foster creativity, encouraging aspiring
artists to achieve greater recognition (and payment!) for
their work, and promoting the arts through a variety of
If you like what you nd here, consider subscribing
to the journal to avoid missing our next edition due out

journal to help us support our talented contributors,
writers, and staff.
Welcome and enjoy OWS Inked!
