The New Criterion was founded as a bold experiment in critical audacity. Nearly forty years later, this once-fledgling magazine is now an indelible voice for culture and the arts.

Our readers recognize the importance of the work that we do, and we are eternally grateful for their steadfast support. We have always considered our readers and supporters to be a small club—a circle—joined together by a shared devotion to what Matthew Arnold called “the best that has been thought and said.”

It is with this in mind that we are announcing the creation of the Supporters Circle of The New Criterion. With a donation of $100 or more, you can count yourself among our Supporters Circle and enjoy exclusive benefits with your membership.

Our readers recognize the importance of the work that we do, and we are eternally grateful for their steadfast support.

All Supporters Circle members will receive an invitation to join The New Criterion for a special lecture on September 25 in New York, delivered by Gary Saul Morson on Vladimir Lenin’s pernicious legacy. Recognizing that not all Supporters will be able to attend in person, we will provide exclusive access to a live video of the event for Circle members.

If you wish to help us in our mission to, be sure to complete your donation—of any sum—by June 30 to be recognized in our Annual Report.

Can we count on you to join our Supporters Circle?
