A weekly circular of writing worthy of attention. Delivered via WhatsApp, and email.
We take care to find the best pieces we possibly can from a diverse range of sources. We include articles examining the key issues of the day but also look to find work outside the usual flow. We usually share no more than five pieces each week to keep editions compact and focused.
