PUBLICATION PRESENTING ALL FORMS OF CREATIVE, TEXT-BASED WORK AS EQUAL & REMOVING USELESS DEFINITIONS OF WHAT CREATIVE WORK CAN BE
1. All work that is presented in this publication shall be referred to as “creative, text-based work” or “CTBW”; “creative” meaning non-factual; “text-based” meaning work that is produced with the medium of a writing system or glyphs.
2. There are myriad variables in CTBW. It is wrong to try to group like example as this sets precedents for production and thus inhibits the creative process.
3. Labels for work and names for any perceived “styles” of CTBW must be eschewed, including but not limited to: literature, drawing, poetry, prose, typography, creative writing, artist writing, word art, lyrics, fiction etc.
4. There are no ”types” of CTBW, but there are varying degrees of subjectivity. CTBW can be interpreted or defined differently by different people, but must be done so consciously.
5. It is wrong to make assumptions about content as a result of execution- each piece of CTBW must be experienced in its own right, peerless unless otherwise intended by its creator.
6. By removing the need for CTBW to adhere to prejudiced definitions we make it possible for the work to exist in its own right and to validate itself, rather than having to conform to prerequisites about content, execution, reference or culture.
7. CTBW does not have to take language into account. All languages – living, dead, organic, constructed – are potential vehicles for CTBW but are not its media.
