It’s a gift to be a journalist in this moment. Or at least that’s what we tell ourselves. It’s the only way to get through. Freelancers (like I am right now) spend every month counting our pennies, making sure we’ll make rent and have a little left over for food and coffee and the other vices of our profession.
“Gonzo Notes,” my free mailing list, launched December 1, 2016.
At least once a month, subscribers receive analysis of current events, simple tipsto make your activism safer and more effective, and links to my recent writing.
I’m not just a journalist, but also an activist and organizer dedicated to building a better world. My writing focuses on issues of inequality, the war on drugs, human rights, and social justice, and I hope Gonzo Notes can become another way to share my viewpoint with my readers and fans.
There’s a lot happening in the world, from the election of an egotistical neo-fascist to the White House to the continued crackdown on basic civil liberties under a growing police state. In Gonzo Notes, I give you my ideas about what’s happening, and maybe what you can do about it.
I won’t ever sell this mailing list to anyone, or use it to send you commercial garbage. I will share a few links I like, promote other writers I enjoy, and let you know new ways to support my writing.
