    Peripheral Surveys (PS+) aims to bring out the voice of the periphery. The perspectives and expressions unheeded not because of the lack of quality, substance, or merit, but because of prejudice, arrogance, and commercial calculations of those who seek to control and turn literature and art into an industry with a broader aim to generate revenues rather than to promote the essence of the art in our time.
