Ascent ascends

Ascent magazine coverLocal literary magazine Ascent ascends under new editorial management. Inforum.

After thousands of submissions and hundreds of pieces of work published for the world to enjoy, a fresh mind and eye is taking over the local literary magazine Ascent. As of January, W. Scott Olsen, an English professor at Concordia College in Moorhead and the author of several books, has stepped back from his role as editor-in-chief of the literary magazine — handing over the reins to colleague Vincent Reusch.

Ascent currently publishes online, with a few hard-copy issues printed each year; however, Reusch is hoping to bring back a regular schedule of printing submitted work.
