It has been a long while since our last email update—my apologies to those of you who rely on newsletters to track new content. In the last month and a half we have published some wonderful work that I am quite proud of and the work that has been going on behind the scenes will not disappoint either. Over the course of the next few weeks we will be giving further updates on some projects that extend beyond our regular essays. New episodes from the Phronesis podcast will also be coming soon.
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.
