simply for us, and us only

created as an answer to the nepotism and click driven editorial decisions many publications are governed by, nothing for us has a strict disinterest in capturing zeitgeist with hot takes. the newsletter is less journalistic and more literary in nature. it also prefers to give voice to writers without prior history of being published.
