We're creating the platform for our generation's intellectuals to publish the best long-form writing out there. Unlike most of our counterparts, we evaluate media solely on its content, depth and perspective. A writer’s credentials and resume aren’t as important as what they put on the page.
Writers should write about what they are passionate about. When writers are invested in their stories, the quality of writing is palpable. We all see the world differently and a variety of perspectives and opinions should see the light. Everyone has something to share.
We won’t hide our opinions and you shouldn’t hide yours. We want liberal stories as well as conservative stories; local stories as well as global stories. We simply want the most honest, relevant content there is. And this philosophy goes beyond stories; we encourage you to comment on articles and further the discussion. We want discourse, debate and (non violent) arguments.
We have spent an immense amount of time shaping the look and feel of the site. We realized that to truly create an elegant and highly functional experience, we had to go back to the drawing board and forget many conventions. The result is a site that’s beautiful, simple and lets the writing and photography shine.
