LITERARY BUBBLES MADE OF CREATIVE IMPULSES | www.shabd.aaweg.com
Shabd Aaweg literally means "literary impulse".
It is a quarterly journal of literary fiction, philosophy and politics. And invites open as well as theme-based entries. It looks for words that pulse with life, that reconnect its readers to the world in newer ways. Be it poetry that tells us what is hidden in the writer’s mind, creative fiction that takes us to cities which were left behind, or non-fiction that becomes a point for us to pause and reflect - each piece is received as a process of catharsis for both the writer and the readers' community.
It seeks to build a safe haven for the artist inside you. If you're someone looking to simply tap into your artistic impulse, SA-R here welcomes you with open arms. So wield that pen, let your thoughts flow, and we'll meet you halfway in expanding the creative process with a portal for honest expression without the pressure of perfectionism.
"Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become."
"Literature is strewn with the wreckage of those who have minded beyond reason the opinion of others."
It is a gang of creative individuals who believe in the power of words, who believe literature makes life more beautiful, and sometimes—worth living. It seeks to showcase, and help produce strings of words that can dazzle, make people believe in life if needed, and carry them to new places. Words that can bring about a change and make lifelong friends of readers and writers.
"When once the itch of literature comes over a man, nothing can cure it but the scratching of a pen. But if you have not a pen, I suppose you must scratch any way you can.
We are looking for words that pulse with life, that reconnects us to the world in newer ways, poetry that tells us what is hidden in the writer’s mind, creative fiction that takes us to those cities which we left somewhere and non-fiction that becomes that page where we would love to pause and reflect.
The world needs art more than ever, and it will continue doing so until the robots take over. After that, it will need even more. Of literature.
