TO THE NEW WRITER
New writers, if they’re to be relevant, must reject the moldy standards of the literary establishment. The old modes don’t work, if they ever worked.
Everything about American literature is in flux. This includes how writing is made and sold. It must include as well new theories about what constitutes literary art, so we can create better stories, novels, and poems which are popular and populist yet at the same time, literary art. Works more readable and meaningful, which portray and discuss where we as a people and civilization are today.
My own example of what the New Synthesis looks like is an e-novel, THE TOWER, which presents the best of both camps, literary and pop.
