Introducing Ampersand Literary

Ampersand Logo_textI am very excited to introduce to you all a new endeavor! Ampersand Literary is an online review for short stories, poetry, photography, art, and so much more. You can check out our website at, and find us on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, and Instagram.

How did Ampersand come to be?

Both my friend Jenny and I love reading, writing, and art. We realized that while there are many personal blogs and large publication houses, there isn’t much in between. We thought there needed to be a platform for aspiring artists to publish their work, so we created one.

At Ampersand Literary, we plan to focus on the aspiring artist, providing a place for them to publish their work, but also learn from other artists, discover new styles and methods, and develop their own craft. We want Ampersand to be a positive place for artists of all kinds to grow and share their ideas.

We also want to be a place where anyone can go to find great art, whether it’s poetry to photography. So even if you aren’t an artist yourself, come check us out! We’re just getting started, but we hope to post many new and exciting things!

We’re also looking for artists, whether you’re a writer or a painter, who want to be a part of Ampersand. We need writers, poets, painters, photographers, and anyone who trades in a storytelling medium. If you’d like to contribute, you can check out our submissions page and email us at

We look forward to hearing from you as we set out on this new adventure!
