Hoax Publication

PUBLICATION PRESENTING ALL FORMS OF CREATIVE, TEXT-BASED WORK AS EQUAL & REMOVING USELESS DEFINITIONS OF WHAT CREATIVE WORK CAN BE

About HOAX…

HOAX is a counter-argument to commonplace ideas of what is and what is not “art” or “literature” and the notion that art and creative writing are mutually exclusive.
Started in early 2012, HOAX is an independent, artist-led project with the aim of creating a space on paper to show all forms of creative, text-based works alongside each other without prejudice or predefined “rules” about the look, format, content or execution of the work. Our output is a gorgeous, free-of-charge publication featuring works by artists/writers throughout the world, with each issue curated to be strong, dynamic, interesting and innovative.
Our manifesto is simple:

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.

The deadline for submissions to issue 3 is the 6th of December 2013. 
Any submissions received on or after the 7th of December will count towards either issue 4 or the website.
