Our Philosophy

Literaty Pakistan is an initiative aimed at cultural revival and bringing the youth towards social enterprise and development. We want to inculcate a sense of positivity, pride and responsibility in the youth of Pakistanboth those studying at home as well as abroad. It aims to bring the youth out of the realm of negativity and despair, in hopes that those who value their country will wish to invest in the development of the country. We hope to attain this with the help of a Quarterly publication, a blog, documentaries and on-ground events (conferences, workshops, movements and social uplift drives in university campuses) that will supplement the literature we are disseminating.

Departments
Magazine
A quarterly publication that has established our identity worldwide, with two issues out already and a third one due very soon, the magazine department is for all those who want to write about Pakistan. The magazine basically provides a semi-academic, intellectually-rooted discussion of who we are, where we come from and where we choose to go. If you want your name to be on an internationally read magazine, if you want to use your writing skills to change the way people perceive Pakistan, if you are good at designing and/or editing content, or if you have new/creative ideas about how Pakistan can be portrayed to the world, the Magazine department is where you want to be. The primary responsibilities of the magazine department will be to: Contribute and write; Sift through content; Investigate; Edit

Blogs
Along with the magazine department, we also have a blogs division which reaches out to an even bigger audience. With more than 16,000 hits already, our blogs are updated on a weekly basis. A little more informal than the magazine, our blogs talk about everything and anything related to Pakistan and the four basic themes we seek to promote: Culture, Tourism, Critical Thinking and Social Enterprise. If you are into blogging and would like to have an international following, the Blogs department is the place to be. You would be required to either write a piece weekly or edit one. IT people for updating and publicizing the blog are also needed. What we are looking for in Blogs department applicants: EMPATHY. Passion. Creativity. Good writing skills.
