Over the course of the summer, we have been working on some exciting projects and opportunities for Athwart moving forward—we can't wait to announce them! For all of our readers who are students or teachers, we wish you an interesting, fruitful semester. As summer departs, we have a slate of essays that focus on nostalgia, escape, and the possibilities offered by the future. Take a look!
Also, if you would like to our work at Athwart continue and grow, please consider supporting us with a monthly ($10) or annual ($110) subscription so that we can justly compensate our writers. Thank you for being an Athwart reader.
