Gen Xers, the last humans to have come of age in pre-digital times, possess a peculiarly essential, even radical perspective. Not only have they managed to avoid the aggressive aspirational tendencies that drive Boomers and Millennials but, as writers, they understand that the freedom to explore and express points-of-view other than those into which they were born is at the core of art in general and literature specifically. For these and other reasons, we’re turning ON into a safe-space specifically for them. Visit our Contribute page to learn more. www.otisnebula.com/otisnebula/contribute.html

  • Dignity, Power, & Place in the Caribbean Space
  • Genre Fiction, Nonfiction, Poetry, Drama
  • Type Magazine

Often the pivot point of personal, ethnographic, historical, economic, and geographic concerns hinges on dignity: The mother–daughter/father–son motif, the citizen–nation dynamic, or the captive–captor power model in regional and diasporic permutations. Power, whether the love of it, the need for it, or the abuse of it, finds its truths within the embrace of dignity, while the immigrant and the refugee, the ocean and its bounty, technology and its universe—dystopian or realistic—proffer concepts of place. For whether by birth, creation, or adoption, eking out our place is an ongoing Caribbean dialectic. Explore with us! www.thecaribbeanwriter.org
