Swimming upstream is a newsletter exploring counter cultural life as a way to communal buyout of oppressive capitalist systems. Posts explore areas like unschooling, homesteading, anarchism, gift economy, and more.

Free subscriptions receive weekly(ish) posts, paid subscriptions receive quarterly snail mail care packages (usually with some combination of art, writing, tea, seeds, weaving, and sewing) as well as weekly unschooling updates.

Thanks for being here and supporting me. It really does make a huge difference knowing that we are connected by interest if not by proximity :)
