This is the first of such updates but you can expect to keep hearing from us in the future. We will be regularly sending out emails with our new content and other happenings at Athwart. We will also be starting a proper newsletter (you will get a sneak peek next week).
This week, we are unveiling a new website design. It will allow greater functionality and increased support as we accommodate our recent growth. We are also planning to roll out some new features, including a subscription membership through which you can support Athwart and its mission.
We are committed to keeping our core written content available to the public and free of charge. Subscribers will receive early access to interviews and similar material, exclusive access to Athwart's community discussion forum, and a special gift in recognition of your support (annual subscribers only).
We are also excited to announce a new editor: Joseph Keegin! Joseph is a great addition to the team and will be in charge of our Society section.
We are excited for this upcoming week at Athwart and expect that you will be too! (Especially our Plato fans.) To see what is new, check out our site throughout the week, follow us on Twitter and Facebook, or read next week's newsletter.
Thank you for your time and support.
