We reside at the end of one era and the beginning of another.
The ways in which we live our lives, interact with one other, order our economies, and relate to the natural world are all fundamentally changing. The change may be for the better or for the worse.
The pace of these profound changes require we attempt three things simultaneously:
- Contend honestly with the scale of change we face;
- Envision what comes next with an aim towards something better;
- Forge a sense of collective meaning as our sense of place and purpose adjust to the unfolding reality around us.
Epilogue attempts to contribute nonfiction essays, short stories, and poetry toward these projects.
Understanding, guiding, and enduring this transition is a mutual project. Solidarity must be at the heart of it. Please write to us to help build this conversation.
The magazine will remain a nonprofit enterprise and welcomes support from our readers.
