The first issue of a new PNG writer’s magazine

In some cultures May Day is “traditionally a celebration (or festival) of spring and the resurrection of nature after the winter months”. It has been many years since Papua New Guinea had a writer’s magazine.

Ples Singsing has decided to address that lack.

In some countries May Day, the first day in May, is recognized as International Labour Day, “a celebration of labourers and the working classes. This publication is a ‘labour of love’ and is meant to be shared to all Papua Niuginians, from the working classes to the market sellers, from sumatin in schools to youth outside of school.

Ples Singsing is a space for Papua Niuginian creativity.

Ples Singsing is envisioned to be a new platform for Papua Niuginian expressions of creativity, ingenuity and originality in art and culture. We deliberately highlight these two very broad themes as they can encompass the diverse subjects, from technology, medicine and architecture to linguistics, music, fishing, gardening et cetera. Papua Niuginian ways of thinking, living, believing, communicating, dying and so on can cover the gamut of academic, journalistic or opinionated writing and we believe that unless we give ourselves a platform to talk about and discuss these things in an open, free and non-exclusively academic space that they may remain the fodder for academics, journalists and other types of writers alone. New social media platforms have given every individual a personal space to share their feelings and ideas openly, sometimes without immediate censure. The Ples Singsing writer’s blog would like to provide another more structured platform for Papua Niuginian expressions in written, visual and audio formats while also providing some regulation of the type and content of materials to be shared publicly.
