What is Contra?

Contra is run by me, Pedro Gonzalez. I’m a writer and editor at Chronicles: A Magazine of American Culture and a senior fellow at the American Principles Project. I publish original writing and analysis on this Substack that you won’t find anywhere else.

Paid subscribers get exclusive content, can comment on posts, receive full access to the archives, and can connect over the Substack app. Becoming a subscriber is also a way of supporting my work in general so that I can reach a broader audience.

Sometimes, guest posts will also appear here.
