Beneath the hyperbole and kidding around, the Underground Literary Alliance is motivated and sustained by ideas. We're eager to test our ideas, and to contest with others about them-- with anyone, in any setting. Our argument has two foundations:
1.) Literature is becoming marginalized in this society and needs to be changed.
2.) The ULA offers new and exciting writers.
The vast bulk of those involved in the creation of literature in America are virtual drones who question nothing about the way lit is made, who makes it, or what is made.
The Underground Literary Alliance questions everything.
