The Editorial Review Board of The Challenge envisions a journal aesthetically & stylistically similar to the other reputed international journals of literary explorations. We publish articles, research papers and creative pieces that combine topical mastery, incisive analysis and originality with engaging style and candid expression of policy prefernces and philosophical premises. Astringency of statement will not be discouraged. The editors seek a broad audience of readers academicians, researchers, activists, creative-writers and students. In preparing drafts, contributors should not be overly concerned about essay length. While crisp and concise writing are appreciated, appropriate length should vary with the apt ambition of the essay. Authors should consider the material they are reviewing as the centerpiece or point of departure for exploring an issue or cluster of issues of contemporary importance to art, culture & literature. Reference to current debates in the field are expected and encouraged. In order to stimulate constructive debate, The Challenge welcomes vibrant and constructive ideas. It tries to create an aura which frames people as informative, incisive, imaginative, and innovative.

Research paper contributors should refrain from using extensive footnotes beyond an occasional reference to parenthetical material or information. Endnotes will not be accepted.

The copyright of each published piece would remain with the editor of The Challenge. The editor must be contacted and consent must be taken before re-publishing or re-printing any published piece of The Challenge.
