Call for Creative Writing Pieces and Interviews

The contemporary world is undergoing a period of accelerated change which can be attributed to a number of different developments: technological advances, the ubiquity of social media and smartphones, the acceleration of global warming and the resultant environmental disasters, and major political upheavals such as Brexit and the growth of white nationalist movements across the globe. These and other changes create constantly shifting and unstable contemporary environments. In this climate of economic, political and environmental uncertainty, it is important to address the impact on and outcomes of these and other major changes in our contemporary world. Besides the usual call for articles, book reviews and academic reports, Aigne is looking for creative writingpieces that relate to this issue’s theme (4,000 word maximum).
