In 2017, iō Literary Journal was an idea. Actually, it wasn't even iō yet. It was a vision for an accessible literary space. We mapped this space with the hope to display works that highlight diverse experiences and embrace all artistic forms without abandon. That was our blueprint.
2018 was the year iō took its own shape. The idea became more concrete, and by the end of the year, it became a tangible literary journal with its inaugural print volume. To celebrate iō's first year, we would like to thank our readers, contributors, and supporters for making the following milestones possible this year:
We cannot thank you enough for shaping iō this year. The blueprint the editors developed through numerous Skype conversations took form with the voices of all who became a part of iō, and we are looking forward to the year to come.
Wishing you a happy new year,
