Jules, Will, Harrison, Roman and many, many more...is creating The Shoestring
Select a membership level
The Shoestring is an independent web magazine covering culture and politics in Western Mass. We aim to create journalism that respects your intelligence and challenges power. That is why a couple of young people with (old, dying) laptops and not much of a future in for-profit journalism are starting The Shoestring. This new publication aims to create a different type of journalism than what currently exists in the area. Rather than respond to the news cycle, we aim to scrape beneath it and tell stories that are of, by, and for the people—stories that make enemies in high places.
