La Lutta: New Media Collective
Here is a great, little underground Zine gathered to promote the forces of social change, as well as world recognition of the problems facing the world today. Based out of New York City, a wide spectrum of artists, journalists and educators have coalesced in the form of one remarkable and powerful voice. La Lutta serves to afford those without the technological advantages an opportunity to be heard. Great articles and an awareness of the things that more Americans need to hear can be found here.
If you are a poet/writer, then here is a site for you. Featured here are poetry, fiction, articles, essays, reviews, interviews and much more. This site also accepts submissions and is updated monthly. Plenty of content to be found here, and a nice mixture of the past mixed the contemporary. This site is sure to inspire all of those looking to mingle with others inspired by the magic of the word.
This is more than an online magazine dedicated to Kerouac, so I wish to advise all those interested in the Beat tradition to take some time and check it out, especially those interested in the Beat effect upon contemporary writing. The beautiful idea behind this site is that it seeks to redefine and create beyond a phenomenon some have relegated to the past annals of American culture. You won't be disappointed, I assure you!
Poetry Changes People
Let's hope so! Otherwise, what is the point of poetry if it is not evoking some sort of emotion, even if it is on the lowest molecular level of being. Poetry does change people! It is something that we still grapple to explain why we to do it, yet we never, as a people throughout time - conjoined to the world, underestimate its value and importance. Explore this strange intoxicant named poetry, ask questions and check out some of the consumed deliverers of its message here.
