Origins 2017

Origins is a print and online literary magazine that examines the art of narrative through the lens of identity and whose aim is to create a center of gravity in which diversity is the norm in publishing.

How does one’s identity inform the creative process? What does it mean to hail from different backgrounds and cultures? In what ways do we reach back to our beginnings to explain who we are, who we’ve become, and who we aspire to be? 

These questions matter to us because we are writers from diverse backgrounds who believe in the power of story to illustrate the endless interpretations of who we are as human beings.
