Ozarks Unbound is an online magazine that chronicles life in the hills we love. We look for stories that remain untold and like to keep our eye on local politics, culture and the arts. It’s a pretty broad spectrum, but if it affects your life, we are interested in writing about it.
The magazine is owned by Christopher Spencer.
A number of writers also contribute regular columns.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT:
- To promote creative and meaningful art, be it writing, music, painting, food or politics.
- To engage our audience in deep dialogue about issues . We strive always to talk with, not at, our audience.
- To live out the maxim: “To comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable,” as espoused by Finley Peter Dunne in his satirical column “Mr Dooley” at the turn of the last century. May his wisdom guide us in this one.
- To reach people where they are – be it on their computer, on a mobile device, or even in print.
