Narratives in Progress are autonomous narrative units updated with new content as often as their authors wish.
Narratives In Progress include hybrid works in which intersect, among others, feminism και queer identity (Α Thing Like You and Me), theatre, mathematics, and formal languages (Centurion by Tom Snarsky – with new instalments on the 10th of every month), meteorology, autobiography and poetry (Walking Through Memories by Jeremy Hight), biography and journal (Second-hand Stories by Dimitra Vamiali), the body and the rhizome (Rhizosome by Theodoros Chiotis – with a new instalment once a week starting from February 2017), appropriations of the lyric style, the fairy tale, and references to the New York School of Poetry (Hotel Women by Anthonis Katsouris).

• “Rhizosome” by Theodoros Chiotis is “a transversal attempt to dis(un)cover all those (overt and covert) alliances.”
• “Hotel Women” by Antonis Katsouris is made of “Brief romantic (self)portraits and episodes.”
• “Walking Through Memories” by Jeremy Hight was “an ongoing project of taking a place in memory and turning in it.. moving in it… forcing the brain to fill it while seeing holes next to deep details, a kind of reporting that comes out in poetic theoretic shards.”
