Welcome! Here you'll find long-form writing on a variety of topics. My optimistic bet in this age of digital media is that many of you out there are still willing to read longer essays if the writing is engaging and the topic interesting. That's what I am striving for here. My focus is on the arts and humanities since those are my passions but I'm not afraid to experiment. What you won't find are annoying ads or me trying to sell you anything you probably don't need. I don't get paid to do this. It's just writing meant to be read. That's all. Anyway, since you're here, stay a few minutes and have a look around. You can find links to my social media pages below. Otherwise, thanks for stopping by. - Paul W.
