It is not the answer that enlightens, but the question. Eugène Ionesco, romanian playwriterThe answers to frequently asked questions (FAQ) that we are asked : everything you always wanted to know about Laputa but were afraid to ask.
Unfortunately Swift’s Laputa is found only in literary fiction, however those who work to this website are real people: we’re Italian guys and most of us live in Pavia, but we have a detachment in Civitanova Marche and correspondents in Barcelona and Berlin.
If you like writing and you are enthusiast of strange and unusual things, you can send us some articles. Bear in mind that Laputa has its own rules to ensure the highest quality of contents and ensure the compliance with the editorial policies: first of all, articles must include verifiable and reliable sources[ ref]Please at least one paper source: e.g book, magazine, newspaper. Everyone can sarch on the internet. No forums and no wikis are allowed as resources.[/ ref ] and they will be subjected to the relentless review of our staff and possibly consultants.
The topics must be relevant to the site (better ask firts), writing should be formally exemplary and stilistically pleasing, the contents must be neutral and impartial. Finally, we do not accepts authors related to pseudo-scientific or discriminatory stances. There’s no reward, apart a bit’ of glory and maybe a meager link to your site (or social). But if, in spite of everything, you want to deal with all that… «may the Force be with you, young Jedi™.»
