Age of Empathy


My Neighbor Didn’t Like the Neighborhood Cats Using His Yard as a Litterbox

We publish high-quality personal essays, humor essays, and writer interviews. Our goal is to provide a place for experienced writers to share authentic stories and connect with others, collectively celebrating a common passion, striving toward an age of empathy.
