A novelist approaches the art form from the unique perspectives of his or her fictional characters. These snapshots, taken during Jeffrey F. Barken‘s travels abroad and his many walks in New York City, offer a glimpse into the moods and mindset of Myles Fletcher, the young writer who narrates All the Lonely Boys in New York and select stories in This Year in Jerusalem. The “Character Lenses” Photo-journal series co-hosted by Ourboox.com and Monologging.org offers examples of how Multimedia can be used to extend fictional realms, enhancing the reader’s sense of a comprehensive illusion.
Whereas traditional books have only one entry point. Websites, on the other hand, present countless portals. From links scattered across the internet, readers are transported into the heart of a story when they visit Monologging.org. Founded in 2011, the “local-global collaborative magazine” and press provides up-and-coming writers and artists with a platform to experiment and collaborate. Uniquely, the premise for Monologging.org derives from my novel, All the Lonely Boys in New York. The speaking game, “Big Echo,” later called, “Monologue,” helps the veteran soldiers portrayed in the book employ free speech and to overcome PTSD-related inhibitions.
For aspiring authors, this is also an excellent writing prompt. By evoking “Monologue” and other interactive models for intensive, two-way, creative communication, Monologging.org seeks to build an international community of writers and artists and to provide a social context for their work. Few experiences are more valuable to a writer or artist than seeing their creations indulged and reimagined by a contemporary.
Collaboration enlarges the scope of the creative works on Monologging.org, establishing a borderless realm for artistic projects. In addition to great fiction and poetry features, the publication provides regular art-related reporting. However you’ve stumbled across Monologging.org, be it by print or by click, we hope that the collected media has enhanced your reading experience, inspiring you to connect.
