AN OPEN INVITATION

FOR PARTICIPATION

IN A LITERARY EXPERIMENT OF A SORT

Hurry, only room for nine hundred and ninety eight (998).

a novel

of community involvement and trust in the postal service

(among other things)

 

If you’re interested, send us an email with the subject “postcard” including:

- your name

- your address

- additional information about yourself (optional)

- any comment/message/words you might have on any issue of your particular interest (optional)

- whether you want to be mentioned in the final version of the manuscript (optional)

- whether you want to be informed about the completion of the book (optional)

 

We, Natalija Grgorinic & Ognjen Raden, feel the world is made too small by the divisions people spend time to invent and implement between each other. In our opinion the majority of the problems humanity is facing today will be solved by development of the sense of a greater community, a community each person in the world will belong to. We wish to contribute to the development of this community through our work and we’re asking you to join in. 

CHECK OUR PROGRESS HERE (last updated 03/17/2005)

We invite people willing to get involved in the creation of a novel to send us their names and addresses. To each and every address we receive we will send a single postcard containing a different fragment of what will in the end be a complete manuscript.

We will document each fragment and each postcard and include it in the finished manuscript. Everyone who decides to take part in this process will thus receive one fragment of the only, original manuscript and our deep gratitude.

No attempt to use the addresses for any other purpose will be made – this we solemnly swear.

And no purchase necessary.

The participants in this project can choose whether they want to be informed if and when the manuscript gets published. They can choose to have their names included in the credits of the book. They should indicate so in the email with their names and addresses.

Our email is: tashogi@yahoo.com

NO ATTACHMENTS PLEASE!

No purchase necessary.

Your privacy will be respected.

No purchase necessary.

(Never hurts to repeat:)

Thank you!
