Slowly divergent Teichmüller geodesics in the moduli space of Riemann surfaces of genus $g\geq 2$ are constructed via cyclic branched covers of the torus. Nonergodic examples (i.e. geodesics whose defining quadratic differential has nonergodic vertical foliation) diverging to infinity at sublinear rates are constructed using a Diophantine condition. Examples with an arbitrarily slow prescribed rate of divergence are also exhibited.
