Mission

​At Radon, we know what we love and hope you will share in our revelry. We strive to be a professional community for a unique blend of passions. Our  goal is to amplify the voices of writers who see the world differently, who use story and verse to expose injustice and investigate our impending futures.

It is our vow to remain non-profit and transparent. We are here to embody the wholesome values of anarchy (direct democracy, equality, free association, mutual-aid) and provide an avenue for writers to join the conversation. 

If you envision writing on Mars before you die, gleefully run toward the technological singularity, or want to fight back against the world, then you've found home. Welcome.
