Lessons for Cultural Insurgency?

IS IT TIME TO CHANGE LITERATURE?

c/o Sidiqullah Khan/ AP

We operate under the premise that the current literary system is top-heavy and ready to be taken down.

The Question: What strategy will accomplish that end?

(It’s been revealed by recent world events that all is illusion, power is illusory, that which seems stable can collapse overnight. The trick then is to apply this realization to other realms. Such as: today’s literature-and-publishing empires, where all is hype and bluff, dusty academies or skyscrapers filled with time-servers and ticket-punchers, with an original idea nowhere to be found. Instead, a well-trained herd following blindly a well-trod path.)

The Countdown to Change has begun. We at New Pop Lit are prepared to document it, and whenever possible, to light a spark. The stakes are huge, the prize enormous: a revived more colorful and exciting literary art.
