Anxy Magazine – Issue 1: The Anger Issue


Anxy is a beautifully-designed magazine about our inner worlds. Each issue uses a central theme to build an original, insightful, and creative perspective through interviews, personal essays, reported features, visual stories, and recommendations. It's not a scientific journal or a self-help manual. We aren’t telling you how to “fix” yourself. We are Anxy. Aren’t you? 

Across 144 beautifully-designed, artfully-written pages, our inaugural issue explores the theme of anger. Featuring Margaret Atwood, Ijeoma Oluo, Matt Eich and many more.
