Tomorrow is what we make it. Specifically, we’re an editorial collective based (mostly) in Los Angeles. We met in 2011 when we were hired to edit and write for GOOD magazine. After we were fired the following year, we got together to make a single-issue magazine we’re calling Tomorrow. We funded it using Kickstarter, exceeding our fundraising goal within the first five hours.
Collectively, our interests include long-form reporting, cheap Tecate, pretty fonts, the intersection of graphic and narrative journalism, karaoke, the internet, the intersection of politics and culture (and subcultures), arguments about race, arguments about Morrissey, and accessories signifying friendship.
Individually, we are:
