The New Inquiry publishes political and cultural interventions. Independent platforms for critical thinking are more important than ever. We plan to use every tool at our disposal over the next year to start conversations, share resources, and amplify voices. We will stay sharp. We will stay focused. We will stay angry.


We are entirely reader-funded. Thanks to you, we’re able to publish daily, pay our writers for their contributions, and keep our content free.

With your continued support, we’ll publish hundreds of original essays and a dozen magazine issues this year. We’ll also expand our impact through live events and special issues. Thank you for making it possible!
