Love this website devoted to great writing, long form prose, poetry, and narrative nonfiction! All advert-free and dependent on donations from readers, and probably whatever grants they can get, etc. We need more independent sources of content like this. Also, the state of journalism today is a tragedy. The death of the print model is leaving a lot of roadkill behind. We need journalists, independent of business and politics, to cover our communities, cops, and courts. Newspapers and magazines of the past, in theory, had a civil duty. They kept people accountable. Corruption would be publicized. Crooked cops, politicians, and judges would be exposed and rooted out of the system. Now, people read so little, and what they read is of low quality and influenced by what they buy, as social media and our devices follow our every decision, so what pops up on one’s feed is already influenced. ProPublica.org — Investigative Journalism and News in the Public Interest is a refreshing example of the future of “independent” journalism. I hope to see and support more of this in the near future. Apologies, if they are funded by a partisan group (I have not read their tax returns … wink wink) or researched them enough to know everything about them; however, I enjoy getting their newsletter.
