Liberty Island Magazine- Looking For Conservative and Libertarian Writers

For all you conservative, libertarian writers out there, there's a new kid on the block.  Liberty Island has just launched its website and is looking for collaborators of the right-ilk. Their mission statement tells it best.

Once upon a time the mainstream culture was conservative and the so-called counterculture was left wing. Today the situation is reversed and a new counterculture has arisen, one that boldly challenges the cynicism, nihilism, and stifling political correctness of popular culture today.

Our mission is to support this raw and untamed counterculture by gathering its creators in one place and providing the tools and resources they need to succeed. Here they can present their latest works, interact with colleagues, and connect with a likeminded audience. At Liberty Island, readers of a conservative or libertarian bent can find fiction, music, video and graphics that reflect their social values and political beliefs -- and readers of all persuasions can find new voices and undiscovered talent. Writers and creators you've never heard of, and won't find anywhere else, because their views have been excluded from the mainstream popular culture.

Think of Liberty Island as a rallying point for a revolt against conformity and groupthink. We aim to be the missing link in a cultural feeder system that has systematically marginalized those who did not go to the right schools, attend the proper writing programs, or toe the correct ideological line. At Liberty Island, good still triumphs over evil, hope still overcomes despair, and America is still a noble experiment and a beacon to the rest of the world.

What is Liberty Island? An imaginative colony. A playground for the mind. A place where your right brain is allowed to run free. Join us! Like Plymouth, Jamestown, or Ellis Island in its heyday, Liberty Island is open for business.
A press release further explains why the need for a non-mainstream publishing site.

Adam Bernstein and David Bellow are the founders, and all writers are welcome.

One writer who has found a home there is Roy "Griff" Griffis. He found me through my blog many moons ago, and has kept in touch. Here is his latest short story posted on Liberty Magazine.

Remember, support conservative artists.
