The Nonconformist Manifesto

For nonconformists only.

Some claim that literature is an endangered species; some argue that books have overstayed their papery welcome; some prophesy that social media and a slew of various blinking and buzzing devices will eventually take over people’s attention and deprive authors of their potential, if not essential, audience — at The Nonconformist, it is our mission to make sure it does not happen.

The Nonconformist is a new initiative, which, as we hope, will change the way books are perceived by the general public, yet without catering to the lowest tastes. Presently, the internet is bursting at its digital seams with book blogs of various quality and provenance; every one of which is brimful of mostly insipid and tedious writing about books and authors. At The Nonconformist, we are going to do it differently.

At The Nonconformist, we aim to create a community of new and bold voices that are neglected and ignored by the more mainstream publications.

At The Nonconformist, we are eager to intrigue you and provoke you; we aspire to challenge the stale norms and ways of discussing books in general. At The Nonconformist, we intend to blow a breath of creative air into the musty literary world and give it a much-needed airing.

The Nonconformist is a new place where rebellious people, yet not only literary people, can meet and feel at home — so be with us; stay with us; stay tuned.

Be where people and culture meet.

It’s for nonconformists only.
