Editorial Focus

Ascent accepts unsolicited manuscripts of short fiction (1,000 words or less), poetry, short philosophical essays on life and the human condition, and reviews of current published works and visual art.

Tips From the Editor

Short essays should comment on life, philosophy, mythology and the human condition without preaching for any particular organized mainstream religious system.
