What is Post-Experimentalism? (Part One)

by Nathaniel Tower

As we lead up to the official release of the world’s first issue of Post-Experimental fiction, we’ll be sharing some thoughts from our writers about what exactly Post-Experimentalism is. Here’s our first installment:

“If experimentalism is the doctrine that knowledge derives from experience, perhaps post-experimentalism is the realization that even the most extensive experience yields only spotty knowledge, that each story is a tangent point into another story and never an end. An awareness and acceptance of this realization.”

–Barbara Westwood Diehl
