About Beyond The Trestle

Beyond The Trestle is a storytelling project that aims to explore the history, culture and context of Georgia sports. What you will find - we hope - are rich, engaging stories and essays featuring interesting characters, legendary games and compelling moments that have all played their own part in shaping the soul of the South.

Your storytelling team begins with Johnathan McGinty, Joe VanHoose and Marc Lancaster. We've all worked in daily journalism and, in many instances, have direct experiences with many of the things we'll chronicle here. We have a grand vision of making Beyond the Trestle a platform where we can invite and encourage the best sportswriters in the South to pursue the stories they want to write.

So, that's why we've got this Patreon page. We believe that writing is a calling for many, and we believe that good storytelling deserves to be supported. Our mission, then, is to not merely share these stories, but also ensure the craft of writing -- particularly sportswriting -- is appreciated, respected and rewarded. We would appreciate your support to make sure we can live that mission out.

There are some great stories to be told, and we'd love it if you'd help us tell them.
