Hip-lit for cyberkids sounds really corny, I know, but you get my drift. What we want to do with 3:PM Magazine — which we launched this week — is find out if authors who usually write for adults can express themselves fully when addressing a younger, pre-teen audience. We are also interested in seeing if experimental literary techniques can transfer successfully to fiction for children: who’s going to write the first nouveau roman for kids? Apart from that, we intend to ask writers what children’s books still influence their work (see Stuart Evers‘s essay on the Bumper Book of Football Stories) and develop the site’s visual side, so any illustrators willing to work for love, please contact us. Never mind Harry Potter, the revolution starts here.
