The Inkling Magazine
The Inkling Magazine is a celebration of the essay form, a personal and accessible approach to intelligent writing and creative response. Since its inception in 2012, we have gathered significant online readership, published over 300 essays, and two print publications. The essays in The Inkling 2013/14 have a vibrant breadth – from writing about Fatness to ‘Facebook’s Plan to Destroy Space’; from seeing ITV’s Take Me Out through the lens of post-feminist theory, to the strange story of one man’s desire to secretly excavate 100 metres of earth from beneath his house in Hackney. The Inkling’s publications are sold by leading independent arts bookshops in the UK and internationally, including Foyles, the TATE, the ICA, and the Idler Academy, and are distributed by Antenne Books and Ubiquity USA.
As an extension of The Inkling’s ongoing contribution to a vivid and dynamic debate between the cyber-keen and the Luddites in their Technophobes & Technophiles section, Editor-in-Chief Helen Charman and Founding Editor Rebecca Fitzsimons will present an exploration of the ways in which the Internet is conditioning our experience of reality.
Helen and Rebecca will also be speaking as part of our panel for the symposium on Radical Publishing for the New Millennium.
