The Regal Fox showcases writing on what it’s really like to be a person trying to figure out the world.

We like to think of the fox as a (somewhat tenuous) metaphor for life. Sometimes we’re smart, quick and fabulous (our reddy brown coats gleaming in the right light) but at other times, we find ourselves lying on the side of the Highway of Life while the people we follow on Instagram zoom past us.

To keep things interesting, contributions will be shaped by regularly posted themes ranging from the seriously silly to the probably profound.
