About Hypocrite Reader

Hypocrite Reader is an online leftist magazine founded in Brooklyn in 2011.

Over the last ten years, the pieces we've published have won wider acclaim, been translated and republished, and served as constantly visited reference works on obscure and fascinating topics. This kind of lasting writing—essays conceptual and timely, useful and unexpected—is rare and valuable. It often requires research and always demands careful thought. Through our collaborative, intensive editorial process, we achieve not only the polishing of individual pieces but also the political and intellectual development of our writers and editors.

In 2020, we began raising money so that we could pay our writers. While begging for money whenever we run out is great, we thought it would be nice to have a regular income to supplement that and help us guarantee a certain level of payment. It also helps us know who our biggest fans are and bring them closer to us.
