Welcome to Vocalis!
After twelve years of blogging mostly about books, I decided I wanted to branch out and try something a little different. Vocalis–vocal, having a voice, sounding, not silent–is dedicated to the personal essay in all its variety. It is a bit of an experiment, an attempt, an assay.
The goal is to publish a new essay every week. I cannot write fast enough to do this on my own so I gladly accept contributions. If you would like to contribute, please review the Contributor Guidelines page.
If you want more details about how this site came about, I invite you to read Everything Needs an Origin Story.
Thanks for visiting!
