“We should see color. We should see religion. We should see homosexuality. We should see gender identity. We should see all the things that make people and the world different and not pretend that we are colorblind or that one story is enough to represent a whole group of people.

But we should also remember that most people have the same kinds of feelings and wants. Everyone wants to be the hero sometimes.”

HOW TO WRITE—David Mitchell

"Head of the Year"
Marge Piercy

The moon is dark tonight, a new
moon for a new year. It is
hollow and hungers to be full.
It is the black zero of beginning.

Now you must void yourself
of injuries, insults, incursions.
Go with empty hands to those
you have hurt and make amends.

It is not too…

The Town was Paper
Multimedia by KBovey
My artwork is based upon the novel Paper Towns by John Green and represents the fragility of the written word and the fandoms built around them. A fandom is a kingdom or domain of fans that come together to discuss and empathise with the characters in a novel or film.
Viewers are invited to interact with the sculpture by moving the buildings and houses and also use the template provided to construct their own paper building to add to the town, therefore participating in the expansion and evolution of fandoms as a whole.

I would like to thank the authors for their amazing books that have inspired this work, in no particular order: cassandraclare, fishingboatproceeds, theartofnotwriting, Suzzane Collins and JK Rowling.

I know this isn’t a game, but I want to play this game.
