The Mantle publishes emerging critics, writers, and intellectuals in the areas of Arts & Culture, International Affairs, Philosophy, and Literature. We foster discourse with a global audience through critiques, essays, and interviews. We pay close attention to voices with limited exposure in their home countries and the English language, as well as individuals experiencing censorship. Our Roundtable debate series allows for deeper engagement on select issues, while our Publishing arm features emerging critical and literary talent in print and ebook form. 

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter and Instagram and Spotify.
