What is Quillette?

  • Respect for civil and open debate

  • Commitment to the search for objective truth

  • The desire to move towards a consilience between the arts and sciences

Each week our global readership grows. We now receive more than 1 million unique visitors a month. To see what hundreds of readers like you are saying about Quillette, check out the review section of our Facebook page. And here’s what some supporters who you may have heard of are saying.

You’re here because you appreciate what we do. We ask you to consider donating what you can and, in exchange, we promise to continue to deliver commentary that challenges and stimulates minds.

Below you can make a one-time or become a monthly patron. Becoming a patron might be thought of as committing to a voluntary subscription service where you decide the amount you would like to pay.

Importantly, you are never locked in — you can opt out or change your pledge at any time.

All contributions are deeply appreciated. It’s an exciting time as people like you discover us. We hope you’ll continue to be a part of our growth.

Warmly, on behalf of the team,

Claire Lehmann
