Awash in a sea of fakery and truth — that’s how Local Nomad sees itself in 2017. Thus, the next issue’s theme will be “Truth or Consequences.” What is truth and what is fake? And what are the consequences of each? The theme is inspired by the old game show of the 1950s, in which contestants suffered jokey consequences if they could not discern the “truth.” These days, the concepts of truth and fakery seem to weigh more heavily on us, and we think a lot about–and are surrounded by–our consequences. The formal Call for Submissions will be posted next week. We look forward to receiving your submissions.
