The editors and writers of Ash & Bones are pleased to bring you the very first edition.
The stories, poems, and essays were carefully selected for the purpose of exposing our readers to a concentrated variety of art that speaks most clearly to the themes: Life Changing Events, Excerpts From Childhood Diaries, Confessions Before Death, Snapshots of Secret Life.
Please enjoy the fictional and non-fictional artwork, as these multi-experienced, multi-talented writers, and the editors of this magazine, intend to reveal memories and imaginations for your entertainment, literary palette, and most importantly, your ever-evolving insight into the human experience.
Special Thanks to Gayle Brandeis, Lynn Skapyak Harlin, and Jennifer Wolfe for shining more creative light into my life than I could have ever possibly imagined. – Andrea Collins-Roe, “Tough Girl”
