About

Avidly is published two times per week, on a roughly academic calendar. It is a place to indulge enthusiasm for thinking and feeling about culture. Many of our writers are academics, and we believe in the work they generate. Others are very much not academics, and we believe in the work they generate.  This is to say that smart people are exciting, intellectual turf wars are boring, and the only thing that matters is how the world is made more vibrant by having read a ton and having thought even more. We write here “with intense eagerness.”
