In 2001 Atwan and Joyce Carol Oates took on the daunting task of tracing that ever-shifting process through the previous 100 years for The Best American Essays of the Century . Recently Atwan returned with a more focused selection for Publishers Weekly : "The Top 10 Essays Since 1950." To pare it all down to such a small number, Atwan decided to reserve the "New Journalism" category, with its many memorable works by Tom Wolfe, Gay Talese, Michael Herr and others, for some future list. He also made a point of selecting the best essays , as opposed to examples from the best essayists. "A list of the top ten essayists since 1950 would feature some different writers."

They are a brand new website that is less than 3 months old and they already have 250,000/day, and it’s growing rapidly. They don’t pay for the first 10 articles, but after that, they do. We are always looking for more like-minded writers to join us. Find us on facebook at Conservative Push Group and one of the editors/staff will direct you on how to get started. The site primarily supports Ted Cruz, but that’s only one facet. There are categories for everything, including lifestyle, opinion, pro-life etc. Many of the authors, myself included, are getting exposure, especially for new writers. The writing on the site is exquisite and we are all like a family. Come on by and check us out. I can’t wait to see what you submit. 🙂
