WRITERESQUE VOLUME TWO 
'Different Realities'

October 10, 2021

“Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.”

― Albert Einstein

 

We asked creative writers to think about the concept of different realities and how this affects their writing. The result? A volume filled with poetry and prose, each inviting you to a different reality of their own that will captivate and make you turn page after page. So, make sure you get comfortable, get a cup or a glass of your favourite and enjoy this reality-questioning journey.   ​

We want to extend our gratitude to all the writers who put their trust in us in such an early stage of our development and wanted to become a part of our history as we publish Writeresque's first issue.

FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION

April 20, 2021

We support each individual's and community's rights to articulate their opinions and ideas without fear of discrimination, censorship or legal sanctions. The right of freedom of expression is recognized under article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and recognized in international human rights law in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR).

As a literary magazine, Writeresque stands against censorship and for freedom of the press and the right to know.

SUBMISSIONS WINDOW OPEN

April 18, 2021

A magazine that celebrates the bravery of being different, what Writeresque stands for is individuality. We are looking for writers who are not scared to explore and break the rules of writing - when it comes to creative writing, we don't believe in rules!

We publish poetry and prose from writers who are rebels in their texts as well as in their everyday and are not afraid to speak their mind; who are themselves because that's who they are. 

That's who we are. We are odd. We steer clear of conventional. We are true.

We Are Writeresque.
