wikiloot

valeveil is compiling submitted critical and/or creative writing responses to one or more WikiLeaks web link(s) of one’s choice, alongside the written responses of other contributors. Text results will be archived here and publicly accessible. You are encouraged to take advantage of this unusual window period to seize and pillage the WikiLeaks website(s). George Orwell remarked in Inside the Whale and Other Essays (1940), “Men are only as good as their technical development allows them to be.”

The WikiLeaks phenomenon is of particular importance to Americans, Swedes and others who find themselves influenced. It has been reported that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange’s rapport with these countries has been under scrutiny. Yet, WikiLeaks as an open source of relevant information―once classified documents―is significant to anyone aspiring for a more realizable freedom of speech and expression. This writing-as-response archive exists because the WikiLeaks issue remains unresolved and a topic of concern. You are invited to respond to this current event.

Note: the WikiLeaks site is periodically “under attack,” thereby causing certain listed WikiLeaks links to be temporarily inaccessible.

valeveil is currently accepting submissions for this project.
