Escape Forever

Originally a small-press magazine run by Robert Wringham and chums between 2007 and 2017, New Escapologist featured wise and funny writing about work and the good life.

The magazine has drawn to a close but continues as an exciting new essay series, a long-established blog, and a column in the Idler — not to mention a comprehensive back catalogue and a well-received book.

We believe that work is best avoided, convention fled, and life loved.
