This site is the brain(ier) child of the Contemporary Fiction Group at Birkbeck College. It's without institutional affiliations and was started up by various members of the group with the intent of finding an online space to post all the extra writings, doodlings and notices that tend to float around on email.
We are calling this site para-academic: it’s not a site for academic publishing; it is a site for quality writing about anything and everything that interests us, and now you. We welcome contributions from friends and not-yet-made friends on the usual topics: art, literature, film, politics, culture at large. This will hopefully be a site for culture writ large.
If you'd like to contribute you can log-in at the top of this website; if you have any trouble registering or have any questions about content please direct any hate mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
