Intellectual Ink is a passion project. I, and a few like-minded individuals, poured our whole heart into creating a medium that would highlight the author and reader communities that we adore. Inside our mag, you will find flash fiction, in-depth interviews, writer resources, book reviews, relationship advice, quick recipes, short stories, and engaging discussions. I believe representation matters, so we aimed to highlight the beauty and artistry in the day to day lives of creatives who are often overlooked by mainstream media.

Dear Readers,

As we step into the crisp and promising embrace of a new year, it is with great pleasure and excitement that I extend my warmest greetings to each one of you. January marks the beginning of a fresh chapter. As we open the pages of Intellectual Ink Magazine’s 26th issue, we find ourselves immersed in the enchanting world of literature, art, and intellect. This month, we are particularly thrilled to unveil our much-anticipated fashion issue. Fashion designer Keah Cher’i takes us behind the scenes of the “House of Sheba,” to explore “TIMELESS: FULL FIGURED, FASHIONABLE, & FORTY PLUS!”

As always, we have our staples. Get into Charlotte’s Closet’s Five Holiday Finds, Inspiration from Shonda Mayes in “The Pressing,” W.T.F. is Going On with Author/ScreenWriter Erick S. Gray, & Who’s down with B.R.A.E. by Author Untamed, Who’s Next with T.H. Moore, and Write News with the ladies of the “Breakthrough: Beauty for Ashes Anthology.” This edition promises to be a feast for the senses, featuring thought-provoking essays, interviews, captivating short stories, and stunning visual narratives from Phoenix Kabali & JB Favour columns.

We invite you to embark on this literary and sartorial journey with us in the spirit of the new year. Immerse yourself in the enchanting tales, lose yourself in the vivid imagery, and allow the words to transport you to a world where intellect and style dance in a mesmerizing embrace.

Thank you for being part of the Intellectual Ink community. May this year bring you inspiration, joy, and a renewed appreciation for the beauty that surrounds us in both the written word and the art of fashion.

We are wishing you a year filled with literary wonders and sartorial splendor.

Warm regards,
