Be Bad.

Hey there, I’m Alexis, the bad writer in question.

Bad Writer as self-deprecating a title for a newsletter can be, is not born out of low confidence, but the dissatisfaction of being a “good writer”. As an English BFA feet-dragger, nuisance-adjacent questioner, and occasional pot-stirrer, I’ve made hesitant acquaintance with being a good writer, which lies not in form or talent, but its usefulness in subservience.

This Substack serves as an outlet to engage with the cultural and philosophical subjects I wish to lend my voice to, and an honest, thoughtful exploration of them.
