Narratives in Progress are autonomous narrative units updated with new content as often as their authors wish. Until now the Narratives In Progress include hybrid writings in which intersect, among others, biography and journal (Second-hand Stories), feminism και queer identity (Α Thing Like You and Me), music, poetry, mathematics, and formal languages (Centurion), autobiography and poetry (Walking Through Memories), appropriations of the lyric style, the fairy tale, and references to the New York School of Poetry (Hotel Women), the body and the rhizome (Rhizosome). There are some more on the way.
We are looking for idiosyncratic, innovative text, art & sound works.
aglimpseof does not reproduce works that have been blogged or published in magazines and personal websites.
If you have an idea for a Narrative in Progress in the form of text, sound or image, or hybrid Narratives, please contact Dimitra Ioannou: dimitra(@)aglimpseof.net
