What a year 2018 has been for Animartists International!

Years after it officially launched, Animartists International went through a period of great transformation. We went silent for a little while but that was necessary in order to get our affairs in order! Since February 2018, there is a new Editor-in-Chief and since Summer, there are new editors, translators and a dedicated social media producer. We even moved the core operations of the journal from classical and majestic Athens to edgy and innovative Manchester!

Throughout 2018, our article contributors have shared intimate stories, conducted eye-opening interviews and tackled challenging themes from around the world. We’ve covered everything from mental health and international politics to literature, neuroscience and gender identity.  As you can see from our festive word cloud, we’ve branched out and there’s plenty more room to grow.

We want to take this opportunity to thank our new and returning Editors, Writers and Translators. We also want to say a big Welcome to all our new followers on social media!

In 2019 and the years to come, we want Animartists International to be “THE” online journal for all those who seek different, through provoking narratives from diverse and rich topics. For that reason, we are always keen for new exciting collaborations. So, if you are someone who likes to bring the old typewriter out (or a laptop these days), if you are interested even vaguely in psychology (i.e. humans), culture (i.e. everything around us) or awareness (i.e. yourself) then please do come forward and reach out to us. You don’t have to be experts in your field just brave enough to put your thoughts and ideas out there for others to read. It is not as scary as it might sound and we will be there next to you along the way. So, don’t waste any time, use our social media accounts or our in-page contact form to get in contact. The sooner the better!

They’ll be plenty more from us in 2019, featuring new writers and as always pushing the boundaries. Stay tuned!

From all of us at Animartists International a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays & a Happy New Year!
