Issue 02 : July 2016
Editorial : July 2016
The tour of more than 5000 lovers of literature to creationandcriticism.com reveals a story of success. We, the editors are indebted to the love that you have showered by visiting the first issue of Creation and Criticism. We assure you that we will continue to give you what is best in creation and criticism.
“Good if you get what you desire. Better if you do not get what you desire. Best is in store.” Yes, it gives relief, particularly to those who neither have the courage to face the corrupt system, nor any desire to challenge. What they wish is to spread the fragrance of love and peace. The peace loving people do not like to be a part of debatable issues or a part of the problem. They always attempt to find out solution and motivate others for following the peaceful means.
To talk against the cultural values is a fashion. Those who promote cultural values are considered backward. Rewards and awards are thrown into their pockets as soon as such people throw the pearls of cultural values considering them useless and outdated. They may succeed and consider themselves successful, but their inner consciousness never lets them sleep in peace. Somewhere they feel restless and disturbed when they peep into their inner selves. Here lies the victory of the creative artist who follows the cultural values and promotes love and peace selflessly. Today the need is of the creative authors and critics who may spread the positive vibes through their writings.
Creation and Criticism (A Quarterly International Peer-reviewed Refereed e-Journal Devoted to English Language and Literature) provides a stage to the creative authors and critics for sharing their creative and critical views through poems, plays, fiction, interviews, book reviews, research articles and videos, which will be helpful in making the readers reflect, think and understand the contemporary scenario.
The journal is devoted to highlighting the genuine creative authors and critics who are not well recognized but possess the potential. Such authors and critics will be highlighted through interviews and videos too.
The journal also offers one award in creation (Poetry / Short Story) and one in criticism (Review Article / Research Paper) every year to honour the potential and creative talent of the contributors. The jury will select the best research paper / article and the best poem / short story, published during the year. The winning contributor will receive a certificate along with a symbolic amount of love that will be a token in recognition of the talent.
Here, we, the editors, present Creation and Criticism with the hope that you will enjoy its reading. A tour of the CC, we believe, will motivate you for fresh ponderings.
All the best!
