JPSFiction has been established as a meeting place for story-tellers and readers to share contemporary fiction that contains environmental themes.
Adding their voices to scientific reports, policies, reports, laws, declarations, and direct action campaigns are the stories of our times.
Fiction in the Quest for a Sustainable Planet
In The Defence of Poetry (pub. 1840) Percy Bysshe Shelley declared that “Poets are the unacknowledged legislators of the world.” This bold insight extends to all authors of creative writing. When Shelley wrote that writers are : “not only beholding intensely the present as it is, and discovering those laws according to which present things ought to be ordered, but also beholding the future in the present,” he announced that writers have a commitment to the future of our world. They are the leaders and revolutionaries who reveal the complexities and crises of our societies and explore visions for our future.
The greatest challenge facing all people, nations and cultures on Planet Earth through coming decades of the 21st century is to re-establish Sustainable Conditions for the natural eco-systems that are essential to survival of humans and all life on Earth.
