History of The Waking:
This space started as Ruminate Magazine's blog, a place for compelling essays, reviews, interviews, art, and ruminations for the past 11 years. In 2019, our editors decided to celebrate this space by giving it a new name: The Waking.
In 2020, in an effort to expand the mission and reach of the Ruminate community, The Waking began accepting short fiction, image-text hybrid word, and transitioned to a full online literary journal.
