His focus is one of many areas where your funding is going directly to pay for original in-depth reporting and essays. Garrett is one of several new contributors to join Longreads this year, and we have more on the way.

We can’t keep growing without your help, so now is the time to subscribe to Longreads and become a member, for as little as $3 a month. For every dollar you contribute, WordPress.com gives us three, so now is the time to join us.
