Longreads is a virtual startup with five part-timers and funded primarily by members. And it has quietly energized the demand for in-depth storytelling on the web, thanks (ironically) to the rise of tablets and smartphones, those weapons of mass distraction.
The Atlantic and long-form journalism site Longreads are teaming up in a partnership that will feature Longreads content across The Atlantic’s digital properties. Longreads remains an independent site, and founder Mark Armstrong will retain full control over editorial content.
Longform journalism site Longreads is giving paying members exclusive access to long-form content that is not available elsewhere on the web. The first selection is a chapter from Charles Duhigg’s bestselling book “The Power of Habit.”
