What are Longreads?
Longreads are changing the way people read online. They’re stories that are best enjoyed away from your desk — whether it’s on a daily commute, an airplane, a subway, a vacation, or your couch. Longreads posts links to new stories every day — they include long-form journalism, magazine stories from your favorite publications (The New Yorker, Esquire, The Atlantic), short stories, interview transcripts, and even historical documents. (For the record: Longreads are typically more than 1,500 words.)
Readers: Share your favorites with the #longreads community by tagging your tweets with #longreads. Check the raw feed for most recent submissions, or search the Longreads database for more than 1,200 timeless stories curated by the editor.
