It’s a little surprising that the Journal/jrnl in an already very, very specific form is supposed to be the main topic, despite it’s still unclear to which extent the potential participants write about their research and work or plan to, or if that should be the main interest or first strategic goal for now.

    Hello! I am Teodora. What brought me here, at jrnl is my interest in the way our textual existence on the Web evolves.

You will find me mostly in my writing at teodorapetkova.com and thebravenewtext.com.
