Longreads, founded in 2009, is dedicated to helping people find and share the best storytelling in the world, including both nonfiction and fiction. In April 2014 we joined the Automattic / WordPress.com family.
Longreads are defined as anything over 1,500 words. They’re stories that are best enjoyed away from your desk — whether it’s on a daily commute, an airplane, a subway, or your couch.
Longreads features stories from the best writers and publishers, as well as exclusive stories never before published online.
