At Proximity, we believe that tangible connections—the kind that root us in a specific place, time, or culture—are living wells of fresh ideas. We hope the stories we publish will expand our readers’ views of the world while grounding readers in their own communities. We choose stories that encourage reflection, laughter, conversation, difficult-but-important questions, and, on occasion, a really good cry. Each theme-based issue pulls together personal and documentary storytelling, diverse in form and length.
