NEW WORLD UNLTD, a project by GWC, Investigators, is a 2015 recipient of a Precipice Fund grant.
GWC, Investigators received funding to support the publication of NEW WORLD UNLTD. A biannual journal published to coincide with the northward and southward equinoxes, NWU features work by artists, writers and thinkers who delve into those realms of thought often considered science fiction: those places where technological fantasy begins to bleed into reality, where consciousness expands into the Oort cloud and language and form are pixilated, time-warped or moving faster than light. While the cost of production is still covered by GWC, Investigators, with support from the Precipice Fund we have been able to offer modest honorariums to our 2016 contributors, many of whom generate new work for publication.
The third issue of NEW WORLD UNLTD, released March 20, 2016, features contributions from Ariel Jackson (contribution pictured), Andrea Arrubla, Jen Shear, Eileen Isagon Skyers, Sydney S Kim, Tyler Dusenbury, Chase Biado, Brody Condon and Madame Ennui. A release event was held at Molasses Books in Brooklyn, New York, featuring performances by Andrea Arrubla and Lorelei Ramirez.
The fourth Issue of NEW WORLD UNLTD will manifest Thursday, September 22. We are currently in the process of seeking out contributors and finalizing projects for publication. A celebration of the release of the fourth issue and two years of publications will be held in late September in Portland, OR, at a venue to be decided. Past issues, including NWU3, can be purchased at release events or through socialmalpractice.com. To stay alerted to developments of the project, keep your communicators tuned to gwcinvestigators.com & @GWCInvestigator.
