Upcoming iconoclast fiction mag Liberty Island wants to highlight the best libertarian/conservative writers. The team behind the project, which is still at the crowdfunding stage, includes none other than Sun News regular Ben Shapiro. Here’s the mission statement:
Liberty Island is the home of the Statue of Liberty, a cherished symbol of American freedom and (since 1886) a welcoming beacon to the rest of the world. The name also subtly evokes the spirit of non-doctrinaire libertarian conservatism that will animate the site. People will be drawn to Liberty Island not for reasons of ideological purity but because they love freedom in all its dimensions–and because it is entertaining and fun. Finally, the name is meant to evoke a kind of utopian nowhere, an island of freedom in a sea of conformity, a place where the imagination can run free.
If you don’t like the PC tone of existing fiction magazines, this is for you.
