Send Natalie Wee submissions and pitches on creativity in the post-truth world
Six times a year, The Town Crier hands itself over to a guest editor. Curators are free to publish for a month on any literary topic of their choosing. This March, Natalie Wee will be curating a month called “Post-Truth Politics & the Creative Craft.”
What implications does a post-truth world have on the creative arts—especially when the latter has so often been upheld as the bastion of political and artistic resistance?
What are the differences and similarities between “alternative facts” and the creation of cultural arts? Does this new political era hold new responsibilities for those who make a living from creating art, and if so, what are they? What does post-truth mean for the future of the English language and the ways in which we communicate?
This is a call for those who are most at risk in this era—people of marginalized identities—to contribute articles on this theme. Give us your essays, interviews, opinion pieces, non-fiction, etc. (word count: 500-2000 words). Be as bold, creative, and loud as you wish. We’re listening. Get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
