About this newsletter

Possibilities is an independent creative newsletter focused on where crisis and community meet.

Possibilities is an independent climate newsletter launched in June 2023 by me, Yessenia Funes. I have covered environmental and climate justice for nearly a decade. You can find my work in Atmos, The Guardian, Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Earther, i-D, Grist, YES! Magazine, and more.

Read more about me on my personal website here.

The newsletter will follow a diary style where I share intimate thoughts related to the week's climate news, as well as behind-the-scenes details about my ongoing reporting and projects.

Possibilities will publish every Thursday.

Newsletter Format

The newsletter will feature:
🌀 Stories from my archive that are presently relevant
🌀 Previews of stories and projects I'm currently working on
🌀 Info that didn't make it into stories I published that week
🌀 Links to what I've been reading that week
🌀 A section to honor lives recently lost to extreme weather events
🌀 My own artistic work, including collages and poetry

My long-term goals for Possibilities:
🌀 Independently license art to feature
🌀 Invite paid guest contributors to write editions
🌀 Write and report newsletter-only stories


Though some editions will be available for free, the newsletter will feature subscriber-only exclusives, including original collages and poetry I create. My long-term goals will be possible only if there is enough subscriptions to support those dreams.

If you're a subscriber who needs to manage their account, go here.

If you believe in independent journalism and supporting queer environmental journalists of color, subscribe today. It costs less than most lattes these days. 🌀
