Mysteries of the New World

Twenty years before Jamestown was established, a small group of colonists settled Roanoke Island, off the coast of what is now North Carolina. When one of the colonists, John White, returned to the settlement three years later, the hundred people he had left were nowhere to be found, but their putative destination was carved into a post (not the tree that had been agreed upon): Croatoan. Croatoan was the name of a friendly tribe who lived on an island to the south.

6 Ways To Use Copywriting To Build Your Personal Brand

Doesn’t it feel like advice about building a personal brand is everywhere lately? It’s true that a big part of building your personal brand is showing up on social media and maintaining an aesthetically pleasing, strategic website. But the thing that really makes or breaks your personal brand is your messaging.

This Inclusive Guide To Lingerie Might Convince You To Finally Give Intimate Apparel A Chance

Writing platforms are in no way easy to build, especially when they’re centered on a niche subject — for example, lingerie. But that’s exactly how former nonprofit worker Cora Harrington got her start. Under a pen name, she started her first blog about hosiery in 2008, but she quickly expanded into writing about the wider world of bras, corsets, and shapewear. In 2008, she launched The Lingerie Addict, which is now a six-figure-earning fashion website and the largest intimate apparel blog. Thro

From Legalized Gambling to The Downtown Project: The History of Fremont East

Before Las Vegas Boulevard was world-famous, Fremont Street was the epicenter of activity in Downtown Las Vegas as early as 1905. While Fremont Street later became known as the “Glitter Gulch” for its flashing neon casino signs, it didn’t receive the city’s first street light until 1931. Many of the signs locals remember from decades past are now housed at the Neon Museum, and more than a few of the oldest casinos and businesses no longer exist along the iconic boulevard.

Review: Dictionary Stories by Jez Burrows

When consulting the dictionary for the meaning of a word, it’s not often that we stop to evaluate the literary quality of the example sentences. In Dictionary Stories, Jez Burrows elegantly reconsiders the examples meant to demonstrate the typical usage of a word by assembling them to construct short stories ranging in genre, length, and style. “Open this book to a random page and you could find yourself reading a noir thriller, a fantasy epic, a sci-fi romance, a family melodrama,” Burrows writ

Review: A Theory of Love by Margaret Bradham Thornton

Exotic locations may add intrigue and a sense of adventure to a novel, but rarely do they also affect the character relationships so fundamentally as in A Theory of Love by Margaret Bradham Thornton. When British journalist Helen Gibbs meets half-French, half-American financier Christopher Delavaux while on assignment on the west coast of Mexico, she doesn’t expect their first encounter to lead towards marriage in London just a few months later. Yet even though Helen and Christopher live the jet

interview: Meg Fee

Meg Fee first shared her writing when she started a blog, which quickly garnered a loyal following. Writing about her time in New York City led to her book Places I Stopped on The Way Home (released by Icon Books in May 2018), an exploration of the formative years she spent in the city as a 20-something. Her work navigates relationships and loneliness through a modern lens. Originally from Texas, Meg now lives in Durham, North Carolina, where she is pursuing a master’s degree in public policy at Duke University. In our discussion, we talked about New York City as a cultural construct, finding home, and turning 30.
