November 2020

Welcome to the November edition of Hyperion Magazine.

After the success of our first issue, we were more than excited to write again. In November we have some returning faces, as well as some inspiring new contributors. In the wake of a dramatic political landscape, it can be almost impossible to gain clarity. Agendas and narratives add to confusion, and much of our attention is pulled from the meaningful.

We are, collectively, on the edge of political, socio and economic transformation. Perhaps some of our words will help guide you through the fog.

We hope you enjoy this issue.
