Status Update


Big news!

Brave New Word was gone and now it is ungone. Because exactly one week after i decided to put it on the shelf things have changed and the big opportunity i was given was no more because "you're weird - fuck off". Whatever.

And since that thing got out of the way (Thank You, Ludacris) - i don't see any reason to keep BNW in stasis. Even more - I'm gonna shake things up a bit. I mean - why the fuck things should stay the same after a break? It makes no sense.

So here's what i will do in the near future. Autumn Special is still thing. It will contain works from past contributors. Also I'm slowly gathering stuff for the 8th and final "all-new contributors" issue. But i'm already looking forward for Number 9 which will be giant clusterfuck. It will go down in history as the single greatest U-Turn in the history of online mags. It will be unlike anything you've ever seen. Get ready.

Editors note: 

Times they are a-changin'! So this is the last regular BNW issue for the forseeable future. That's it. Things have changed. I don't have much time to devote myself to this mag. It's personal.

But sadly that's not the only reason.

Over the course of last couple of months i started to feel that this magazine despite all my efforts is eerily unremarkable. And that was irritating. No offences to all contributors past and present - but I saw the same kind of stuff all over the place. But i kept going hoping someday things gonna change. Things stayed the same. Sometimes it happens that way. Combined with severe lack of time and overall disillussionment of ambition to make a difference - i thought it would be better to take a pause then multiply the same. My bad.

The other rather significant reason are submissions. Let me give a little bit of stats. Issues 4-5-6 were big on unsolicited submissions. Since May i've received over 300 email submissions. That's a whole lotta stuff to review. And it takes a lot of time that i should've dedicated to something else. Most of those submissions were utter rubbish. And it's OK. The term "experimental writing" is a vague umbrella and every author digs it the other way. But holy smoke - it was wrong. But that's not the the problem.

The problem was that more often than not while declining the submissions i've received lots of bad words regarding editorial politics. Not everyone were cool with declines. Aside from innocent idiotic "Well, just take it to the next issue" there were overreactions like this: "you don't get it! i feel pity for you, dumb fuck. i'm hurt by your narrowminded attitude. i'm the best out there and i'm getting published all over the place - no one says no to me. it doesn't work that way. this is going to have some consequences." (that is real response). But that's the roughest.
Typical response was - "go fuck yourself _faggot, idiot cunt, dookie squid (seriously), gnomic bohunk (in fact i had to look at the dictionary to find out what that word meant), stuffed soilsack_ your blog is nothing but a _dumpster, rathole, pit of worms_ for _sickos, queers, sissies_ to vomit". What kind of insecure dumbo the man has to be to react in a such manner to a decline from a microscopic (all things considered) magazine that is barely indexed by Google and is technically invisible? It is tiring to get such reaction and so i thought "Should I really waste my time on such crap?" and the answer was "I don't so".

Things got very emotional. But let's go back to the issue. This one was half-ready in July. I wanted to use works from two past contributors but ultimately excluded them from the issue due to fast-tracking Special Issue where their work will be represented. Otherwise it is a solid patchwork of texts and images, a little kaleidoscope of various forms of art. I'm really glad the issue is the way it is. There is something cathartic.

Editors note:

I'm gonna be a bit minimal this time. It was fun. Making this issue was really satisfying experience. I've met lots of interesting people, got so many ideas i'm almost overwhelmed. It is really good. I'm proud of this issue. It came together naturally as mesmerizing kaleidoscope with intense humming.

The submission flow was tight but relatively clean. 52 letters if being exact. Rather big number for a niche poorly named online magazine which is barely indexed in Google and barely exposed (hey, i'm in charge i can be honest). Even rejected submission weren't that bad. Just not something that can be used in BNW with maximum result. And I had a really funny discussion on politics of including bio and photo on one of the posts in the submission calls groups. Anyway...

Look at the line-up - all top-notch hardcore funkateers!

Ética Makinal was a group of teenagers who experimented with music created with synthesisers. Their aesthetic was related to punk, noise and industrial movements, but they also referred to other times and forms – they researched the visual principles of avant-garde and they were influenced by Futurism, Dadaism and Constructivism. In spite of living in the periphery, in the isolated Asturias, they soon engaged with the emerging national scene, which had nothing to do with the famous “Movida”, and they even exchanged letters, fanzines and cassettes with groups from other countries, likes France, Italy and USA.

                    ISSUE #5

                    Editors note:

                    This one was a rough ride. I don't want to get into the details but this time i had to deal with so many submissions that were inadequate to the magazine's concept I thought somebody was joking on me. That was downright discouraging. That's why this time I relied more on curated content than incoming submissions. It made a better issue.

                    I'm glad to present you the works of the following:


                    Table of Contents:

                    2. Mark Young - Eleven poems
                    3. Marco Giovenale - Six Glitch Asemic Pieces
                    4. Sean Smith - Forty Weaves
                    5. Angela Caporaso - Three collages
                    6. Kyle Hemmings - Six text-visual combos
                    7. Yrik Max Valentonis - Herstory
                    8. Jack Galmitz - Three poems and one visual
                    9. Nathaniel Horowitz - Three asemic pieces

                    Since her first exhibitions, which date back to the eighties, she has revealed a constant strain towards new expressive languages.
                    This constant research led Angela to contaminate sign with colour, font with image, literature with painting, as though one single medium was not sufficient to express her complex imaginative world.
                     Angela Caporaso has worked on the words of the main contemporary writers.

                    Announcing Brave New Word #5

                    Ladies and gentlemen!

                    Brave New Word #5 is going live on June 1.

                    It was a rough ride but largely a satisfying one. This time you'll see lots of asemic stuff, more inventive writing and so of the most caustic imagery out there. Spread the word and bring your friends!

                    ISSUE 4

                    ISSUE #4

                    Editors note:

                    Still can't believe this magazine lasted more than three issues. I guess i'm becoming a more organized person because of this. Anyway...

                    Original plan for the #4 was to make a prose-centered issue. There was a fair share of nice pieces that were individually fine - but in whole it wasn't working at all. It was a mess. So I decided to start from scratch instead trying to fix fundamentally broken concept.

                    And it was moderately successful. It took longer than usual to make it work. The flow wasn't as good as Issue 3. There were a lot of trash submissions and too many pieces that were critically unfit for the magazine that promotes experimental writing. But after all - it's a solid issue with lots and lots of great stuff to read and think about.

                    I'm glad to present you the works of the following:
