It’s the end of a year some of us would rather forget — but 2017 will always be a special one for Inkstick.
Since our launch in September, so many of you have reached out to say thank you for a much-needed dose of real talk and human storytelling in a world that can sometimes feel sterile and sad. We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished, but as the year comes to a close, we’re reminded that we’ve only just begun. 2018 will bring the launch of our new podcast with PRI, Things That Go Boom, and so much more.
As we celebrate the past and look forward to the future, here’s a look back at the top ten pieces we were honored to run in our very first year:
