I’m Nick Coccoma, a writer and critic. My work has been featured in publications like Boston Review, Full-Stop Magazine, Critics at Large, The Washington Examiner, and New Politics.

This newsletter, The Similitude, is an ongoing conversation about how we can live as individuals and a community.

My interests include culture, religion, and politics. I also write about philosophy, history, and social movements. I’ve worked as a teacher, campus minister, and hatter (yes, that’s a real job).

A native New Yorker (upstate) I currently reside with my wife in Boston. Yankees forever.
