Richard Wittaker, editor of Works and Conversations, is someone I’ve admired since first coming across his magazine. Now even more so. After 15 years of publishing Works and Conversations on his own, never taking a penny for himself (sounds familiar), never using advertising, has partnered with Charity Focus.

Together, they are giving up any last remnant of a business model and have changed to a gift economy. Using a pay-it-forward mode, you can subscribe for free and are welcome to donate at any time to help someone else receive a free gift of this magazine. You can also subscribe for the newsletter, which will include links to the full content of the magazine.

As he says: “ours is a humble effort to be the change we wish to see in the world.”

The magaizine is made up of interviews with a wide range of artists and everyday heros.
