New Look

The Confusionism theme has been updated to give it a new more modern look and much of the sidebar clutter has been removed. It should also make the site easier to navigate.

If anyone has any comment on this change, please let us know.

Graham Lawrence

Graham Lawrence 2013. Picture copyright by Sinlaratn Soontornviset.The personal and professional website of one of the founders of Confusionism is now up.

The site Graham Lawrence covers his publishing, editing, training, teaching and administrative work rather than his confusionist thought and philosophy. However, if you want to know a little more about one of the creators of confusionism or would like to see another side of him, this site should be of use.

He is also the founder of the the online English literature journal Eastlit. This journal was the first journal dedicated to English literature and artwork from or connected to East and South East Asia.

With Bryn Tennant he jointly first postulated the Confusionist philosophy. Graham and Bryn also jointly founded Eastlit although Bryn later left that project.

New Year

Well the team at confusionism who have not been that active in 2013, would like to wish all our readers a Happy New Year.

This has been the year of Edward Snowden exposing the very tings that confusionists have warned of in the past half decade. Kudos to Mr. Snowden.

In other areas the confusionism team is concentrating more on artistic ventures including the online journal Eastlit. This is the first journal aimed at English literature and visual artwork from or connected to East and South East Asia.

International Writers Group

This is a recommended writers group:

The International Writers’ Group (IWG) is for anyone anywhere in the world, writing in English. IWG also actively encourages non-native writers to be part of the community. This is an open democratic community for writers and readers where sharing, support and discussion are welcome. Join and participate as much or as little as you want.

The International Writers Group is a Google+ community, which means you need a free Google+ account.

Fragmentary writing will be part of the discussion among other styles in this group.

Interlude Eight

Well since getting the basic principles of confusionism and confusionist art laid down, posts have become less frequent. However, this is about to change with new pieces of writing by G and some more photo-art by Soontornviset. There will also be more commentary on the confusing events we see around the world and those that are often deliberately made to seem more confusing in attempts to obfuscate, so we cannot see the real picture.

There will also be a move to add more on arts of different styles.

This will all start to unfold in the coming days and weeks.
