Award-winning Atavist Magazine moves to Newspack platform

The award-winning Atavist Magazine recently moved to WordPress.com, sharing its platform with Longreads. Newspack, a suite of tools and plugins specifically designed for publishers and newsrooms, powers Atavist.

Journalists and editors have praised the publication for its comprehensive reporting and outstanding design. Among its many achievements are a National Magazine Award and a Livingston Award. 

Automattic acquired the publication in 2018, and it moved to Automattic’s Newspack platform this April.

Atavist joins a list of 100 news websites built on WordPress that include Reveal, Sahan Journal, Hong Kong Free Press, The Oaklandside, Transitions Online, and other local and regional news outlets.

We just celebrated our 10th anniversary, and we can’t think of a better way to ring in a new decade of telling great stories and championing the people who create them than this move.

– Atavist editor in chief Seyward Darby

With C13 Originals, Atavist will also launch their first-ever narrative podcast, No Place Like Home.
