My friend Michael Cecire and I tried to start a pub­lic pol­i­cy-ori­ent­ed lit­er­a­ture mag­a­zine in 2016. We were able to solic­it a few real­ly inter­est­ing short sto­ries, but ulti­mate­ly could not gen­er­ate the momen­tum need­ed to turn it into a sus­tain­able enter­prise. I’m post­ing our con­tent below, to keep it online and archived.
