The aim of Literature for the People is to counter the unfortunate bad reputation which literature in general has been accumulating over the past decades, especially poetry. Many people have been given to understand that literature is an art reserved for only the privileged few, such as academics or critics, whilst many parochial literary organizations have made it next to impossible for new and aspiring writers to find publication for their works.
History, however, shows that literature and poetry had their origins in the aim of entertaining all the people. Most storytellers, poets and many playwrights made their first debut on the market streets, the squares, in open theatres and even in taverns. The present parochial hierarchy seems to have forgotten that literature and poetry are both communicable mediums and should reflect the reality of true sagas that each and every person has experienced throughout his short journey on Earth. No one has the right to deprive this field that offers such great entertainment from any living person by treating it as if it belongs to them by some divine right.

Literature for the People was the inspiration and creation of Maltese journalist, writer and editor, Raymond Fenech Gonzi after many years of contributing poetry to various Canadian, English, American, Cuban and Maltese newspapers, magazines and anthologies. Through this journey, he discovered Pablo Neruda and his famous love poems and Milton Acorn, the Canadian people’s poet who believed that poetry should be written in everyday language which everybody can understand and enjoy. More importantly, the experiences shared in any writer’s works should allow readers to assimilate these to their own. The magazine is produced in Malta.BUY NOW
