Issue # 2 February/March Edition 2021

OUR MISSION

Creativity is within each of us and when it is utilized for whatever moment in time,

the environment becomes more calming and peaceful, taking away the weight of

the world, of that which surrounds us, we are able to utilize our creative muses,

whether through writing or visual arts, discovered or possibly undiscovered by 

chance, through some profound experience.

Creativity through Literature and the Arts are most beneficial to the inner senses

and well-being from within. We have a stronger sense of ourselves, and when we 

allow our inspiration to flow, whether it be through poetry/prose, visual arts, or

other types of literature, whatever genre inspires us, it is that impulse of 

significant points of time where we can connect our mind, heart and soul.

Our goals for ILA is to spark that creativity, to encourage and support writers

and artists along their journeys of self-expression, by providing a harmonizing,

comfortable environment. Our desire is to promote cultural diversity of literature

and the arts with both established and emerging writers who have a voice and
perhaps a deeper understanding of values, such as humanity, peace, and freedom

of speech. Our goal is to broaden the horizons of many, to be a catalyst of guidance,
to help boost the confidence of people with a voice who are just beginning on

the journey into literature and the arts, and, for the silent voices who are just

starting out on their adventures or writing endeavors.

We are supportive of writers and artists with aspirations and goals. We welcome
the voices of diverse individuals from different backgrounds, religions, ethnicities,

cultures and societies, with utmost respect and love.

ILA is a non-profit magazine, devoted to the world of literature and the arts,

and it is here, we hope to provide a platform for writers, poets and artists,

internationally. We want to promote the silent voices, to celebrate alongside,

that special creativity, the chance to be read and recognized, to finally be heard.
It is within all voices, freedom of speech and literature where we will open

the barriers that have kept some apart from the rest of the world, to give 

a sense of belonging, a deeply rooted feeling, as if you've always been here

and never left.

We support all writers and artists who aspire to publish their work and share

their creativity with both our E-Magazine as well as our Facebook Groups,
(ILA Magazine group) and (Kashmir Writer's Guild). Here, we feature
Editor's Choice, Poetry/Prose, Short Stories, Special Features of Writers,
recent Book Publications, Articles, Visual Arts/Photography, Blog articles
and literature, as well as an occasional review with hope of featuring future

translations.

Our third issue will be published in May/June 2021.
