Narrative Paths Journal Group

NPJ was initially imagined from the publisher’s global treks & voyages.

We are a group of individuals at global locations from various backgrounds and orientations with a shared interest in collaborating and inspiring each other while exploring ideas that are both intuitive and counterintuitive.



Vision evolves: Our primary aim is developing an accessible International Literary E- Journal touching upon diverse philosophies and ideas with fresh approaches in varied fields of human interest – an evolving architecture of the human voice. 

An Overall View of our MISSION as part of the Reformation of the 21st Century
