Freedom in a Puritan Age : online journal

Leeds Salon has joined with the online journal Freedom in a Puritan Age to provide an outlet for writing and continued debate.

FIPA is an online journal, founded in 2009 by Katherine Sansom. Its aim is to identify countervailing currents in progressive thought within contemporary culture and provide alternative viewpoints on issues of importance.

If you would like to write for FIPA, please send submissions to editors@freedominapuritanage.co.uk. Feel free to contact FIPA with a draft or pre-draft proposal for an article.
